Welcome to the VIth International Conference on Legume Genetics and Genomics (ICLGG) in Hyderabad!

Legumes play important role in the quality of life on human kind and form a major crop for human food, animal feed and forage. Legumes can be synthesized to medicinal and nutriceutical compounds and antioxidants and can be used for soil improvement. Legumes have been part of agricultural production in several continents for thousands of years. Most legumes possess seeds rich in protein, oils and starches. Legumes have the potential to play an increasing role in alleviating these threats owing to their ability to produce, with minimal environmental damage and external energy input in the form of nitrogenous and phosphorous fertilizers.

The VI ICLGG is an continuous effort of its mission to bring together scientists working on research aspects of legume biology in model species, using genetic and genomic tools, with those working on applied aspects and breeding of crop and pasture species. The meeting will focus on fundamental discoveries that extent our understanding of the unique traits of legumes and review the tools and resources and approaches including technological advances to study legume genome(s).

Hyderabad, the 400-year old city of Andhra Pradesh state of India, is known for its rich history and culture with monuments, mosques, temples, and a rich and varied heritage in arts, crafts and dance. From its topography dotted with rocks and boulders to landscaped gardens, from the quaint Charminar to towering global giants, from the colourful bangles of the city to multitude of international designers and from the delectable haleem and biryani to cuisines from all over the world, the international legume community will find the historical and the contemporary, side by side.

The meeting will have lead and invited presentations from the leading authorities in legumes research, contributory presentations from the selected abstracts and dedicated poster sessions. In addition, some workshops on topical subjects will be organized on October 2, 2012.

You and your colleagues and collaborators are invited to contribute to the scientifically rich meeting and explore the historical city and the beautiful country in a pleasant weather !!

Looking forward to welcoming you in VI ICLGG in Hyderabad!
