The ICRISAT's Center of Excellence (CoE) in Genomics (CEG, http://ceg.icrisat.org/) as a part of Critical Focus area-Molecular Breeding is pleased to announce 5th International Conference on Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding (NGGIBCI-2015) for Crop Improvement at ICRISAT Campus, Greater Hyderabad, India. This Conference is being organized in continuation of our earlier four meetings/workshops on NGS data analysis (http://ceg.icrisat.org/1-ngs.htm; http://ceg.icrisat.org/2-ngs.htm; http://ceg.icrisat.org/3-ngs.htm and http://www.icrisat.org/gt-bt/NGGIBCI/home.htm)
Better communication and sharing of the ideas among scientists and stakeholders is the key to achieve the goal of global food security. This conference will provide a platform for scientists to interact with each other and present their work and discuss different aspects of modern genomics and breeding for crop improvement.
The Conference will be organized under well-structured technical sessions that will include invited lectures by eminent speakers in the fields of genetics, genomics, breeding and allied sciences. A poster session will also be arranged to encourage participation of young researchers in the conference.
This Conference will have following themes that will include presentations and discussions as follows:
Next generation genomics
Novel mapping approaches and QTLs
Advances in phenotyping and trait mapping
Marker-assisted selection / backcrossing
Decision support tools for breeding
New horizons for crop improvement
You and your colleagues and collaborators are invited to contribute to the scientifically rich meeting and explore the historical city of India in a pleasant weather!!
