Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies VI
(July 6-7, 2022)
Welcome to the 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies”!
Plant Transformation and Transgenic Plants are nowadays core research tools 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 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies” to be held in Vienna, Austria on July 6-7, 2022 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.
This two-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies”, and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaboration.
The 6th International Conference “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies” will cover the following research topics:
- Agrobacterium and Other Methods of Transformation
- Novel Plant Transformation Systym
- Transformation Elements: Vectors, Promoters, Selection Systyms
- Plastid Transformation & Molecular Pharming
- Marker Free Technologies
- Plant Transformation of Important Crops
- Genetic Engineering of Useful Traits
Among the invited speakers are internationally known names such as:
Huw Jones (UK), Yurong Chen (USA), Stanton Bruce Gelvin (USA), Lan-Ying Lee (USA), Catherine Navarre (Belgium), Matthew Milner (UK), Linda Avesani (Italy), Goetz Hensel (Germany), Fredy Altpeter (USA), Stephan Wenkel (Denmark),Kirankumar Mysore (USA)…
Approximately 250 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, exhibitions, and interesting breakout sessions.
Deadline for submission of abstracts is June 10, 2022
Early bird registration: June 20, 2022
Please note: The next VISCEA Conference “CRISPR & Plant Genome Editing” will take place immediately after “Transgenic Plants & Transformation Technologies” Conference on July 8-9, 2022 at the same location! We are pleased to offer you the chance to participate and register online for both at once for a very attractive registration fee!
We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna on July 6-7, 2022!
