To celebrate the contribution of genomics in plant research, the French Plant Genomic Resources Center (CNRGV) organized “Plant Genomes’ Day” to coincide with its 10th anniversary celebrations on 4 June.

Twelve leading scientists who played a major role in the development of plant genomics were invited to present and share their views on the future of genomics. Dr Rajeev Varshney, Research Program Director-Grain Legumes, ICRISAT made a presentation on “Genomics strides in grain legumes” at the event.

CNRGV was established by the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) in 2004 for preserving and maintaining plant genomic resources produced in the context of major projects by internationally-renowned laboratories. CNRGV is a repository center for all the plant genomic libraries and also a service provider dedicated to the scientific community.
