The meeting is currently in production. If you would like to be a part of the 2023 meeting contact febrina@global-engage.com. This meeting will be co-located with the 7th Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress:USA.

In 2022 we explored novel strategies and developments in plant genomics and gene editing through a series of case studies and an examination of the latest scientific research. Leaders from academia and industry considered key developments in gene-editing technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 and TALEN and discuss their application in improving disease resistance, stress tolerance and crop yield. The development of AI and machine learning was also explored.

7 hours of networking time

40+ Speakers

Now in its 10th Year

Why Attend

01

Attracting over 200 people the congress is designed to create a collaborative environment in which you can engage with the speakers, sponsors, and other delegations in attendance.

02

Explore how machine learning can generate comprehensible predictions from complex models and examine how technologies like "HI Edit" provide rapid deployment of edited traits across commercial germplasm.

03

Access the collocated Partnership in Biocontrol, Biostimulant & Microbiome Congress to explore developments increasing crop yield, improve soil health & nutrient uptake, and efficient water use.
