The present status of green gene technology in the Central European Region stimulates more active collaborative efforts to exploit the potentials of biotechnology in agriculture and bioindustry. The economic success in these fields is largely dependent on the science-generated new knowledge. The present symposium is focused on the use of gene technology in research to discover basic molecular events modeling plant growth, development and productivity. It is hoped that the new information will contribute to increase successes in plant breeding and bioindustry. Special attention will be devoted to GM plants and their role in competitive environment friend agriculture. The traditions in plant cell and tissue culture techniques in the Central European countries provide a unique opportunity for the development of the methodology of in vitro molecular farming. The scientific success of this event will be guaranteed by the invitation of leading scientists as keynote speakers. The organizers want to provide stimulating conditions for young scientists to show their excellence in plant and agricultural sciences and research. We expect useful discussions following the presentations. The poster session is open for all the interested researchers, students where experimental details are shown and discussed. As in the past, this meeting offers an optimal environment for personal contacts and initiation of collaborative projects. The use of complementary expertises is a prerequisite for successes in joint grant applications.

The programme consists of six topics, each introduced by invited speaker:
1. Gene isolation strategies in the genomic era
2. In vitro culture systems: plant propagation
3. Gene technology to improve biotic and abiotic stress tolerance of crop plants
4. Transgenic plants for sustainable plant production: yield and bioenergy
5. Plant-based biotechnologies to support human health
6. Transgenes in environmentally friend agriculture, biosafety
