  Plant Genetics and Breeding Technologies    

(February 1-2, 2016, Vienna, Austria)                                                    Jump to: 



Welcome to the International Conference on "Plant Genetics and Breeding Technologies"!

Modern Plant Genetics and Breeding are important factors for ensuring food security by developing new varieties that are higher-yielding, resistant to pests and diseases, drought-resistant or regionally adapted to different environments and growing conditions. Advances in Genetics and Genomics, Molecular biology, DNA sequencing and information technologies have transformed our ability to track genetic variation and plant performance, making the process of plant breeding radically faster and cheaper than ever before. New, innovative and robust technologies are emerging faster than ever before making plant breeding a high tech discipline

The main aim of the International Conference "Plant Genetics and Breeding Technologies" to be held in Vienna on February 1-2, 2016 is to bring together academy and industry to highlight and evaluate modern Plant Genetics and Breeding Tools and Technologies, define perspectives and establish strong bridge between academy and industry and multilateral collaborations.

Vienna is located in the heart of Europe on the banks of the Danube River, and considered one of the most important economic, cultural and touristic large cities of central Europe. Apart from providing top science, the Conference will capture the spirit of the city thanks to the central location of the venue, offering a multitude of cultural events just minutes away.

The International Conference "Plant Genetics and Breeding Technologies" will cover the following research topics: 

• Plant Genetic Resources & Natural Variability
• Heterosis breeding
• Plant Genetic Populations & Population Genetics
• Polyploidy in Plant Genetics & Breeding
• Haploids and Doubled Haploids in Plant Genetics & Breeding
• Molecular Breeding tools: "Omics" & Arrays
• Molecular Markers & Marker Identification Technologies
• Mapping of Plant Genes & Map Based Cloning
• Genomics Assisted & Marker - Assisted Breeding
• Molecular Plant breeding
• Genetics & Breeding of Quantitative Trait Loci
• Modelling & Simulation of Plant Genetics and Breeding
• Genotype-to-Phenotype modelling
• High-throughput Plant Phenotyping
• Breeding for Important Traits
• Emerging New Technologies & Innovative Breeding

Amongst the invited speakers are internationally known names such as:
Chu Chengcai (China), Bradley Till (Austria), Jochen Kumlehn (Germany), Adnan Younis (South Korea), Sunghwa Choe (South Korea), Paul Nakata (USA), Jesse Poland (USA), Doil Choi (South Korea), Jean-luc Wolfender (Switzerland), Danny Arends (The Netherlands), Marinus J.M. Smulders (The Netherlands), Roberto Tuberosa (Italy), Marion Roder (Germany), Nils Stein (Germany), Miguel Perez-Enciso (Spain), Alison R. Bentley (UK), Sachinko N. Isobe (Japan), Mark. G. Aarts (The Netherlands), Silvio Salvi (Italy), and others.
*The list of invited speakers has yet to be confirmed.

Approximately 300-350 participants are expected to attend this exciting scientific forum including almost 40 lectures delivered by worldwide known invited speakers and young, talented speakers selected from submitted abstracts. The program combines plenary lectures, poster sessions, a unique Conference Dinner Party and sightseeing tours of Vienna.
Abstract Submission deadline is extended until January 15, 2016
Special Reduced Registration deadline: December 24, 2015
We are looking forward to see you in Vienna in February 1-2, 2016!
