Plant Transformation & Biotechnology V
(February 18-19, 2019, Vienna, Austria)
Welcome to the 5th International Conference “Plant Transformation & Biotechnology”!
Plant Transformation is now a core research tool to fight against hunger, to open up the new avenues of science, to evolve the crop varieties, which are multipurpose, producing high harvests under normal and natural stressful conditions to make Earth green and prosperous. The major technical challenge facing plant transformation is the development of methods and constructs to produce a high proportion of plants showing predictable and precise transgene expression without collateral genetic damage.
The 5th International Conference “Plant Transformation & Biotechnology” to be held on February 18-19, 2019, in Vienna, Austria will discuss current key objectives of the plant transformation technologies including understanding and control of precise transgene integration, expression and stability in plants, improved transformation systems, address biosafety considerations and develop GM crops for the benefit of developing countries.
Vienna is located in the heart of Europe on the banks of the Danube River, and considered as 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.
This two-days event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Plant Transformation & Biotechnology”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.
The 5th International Conference “Plant Transformation & Biotechnology” will cover the following research topics:
- Agrobacterium and Other Methods of Transformation
- Transformation of Important Crops
- Plant Transformation Tools: Vectors, Promoters & Markers
- Plant Transformation Tools: Marker Free Technologies
- Plastid Transformation & Molecular Pharming
- Breakthrough Technologies: News in Gene Targeting
- Plant Transformation and Public
Approximately 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.
Early Bird Registration Deadline is November 15, 2018!
We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on February 18-19, 2019!
