AgriGenomics is the detailed study of the genetic makeup of the plant and how all the genes work together to produce the crop. Recently there has been great interest in genetically engineering plants to optimize yields and their use in biofuels. So, now is a good time for scientists, business people, bio-ethists and patent experts from around the globe to come together and catch up with state of the art practice in this fast expanding field.

Keynote Speaker
Dr Richard Flavell, FRS, CBE
Chief Scientific Officer
