6th International Rice Genetics Symposium (RG6)
Venue: Manila Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Nov 16, 2009||End Date/Time: Nov 19, 2009|
The symposium comes at a key time for the international rice industry, which is under unprecedented pressure caused by record high prices and major production challenges. It provides an important forum for reviewing the latest advances in rice research, how recent breakthroughs could affect global food security, and in-depth discussion and exchange of information on classical genetics and genomics. This major event will showcase the latest developments in the field, including research on breeding, mapping of genes and quantitative trait loci, identification and cloning of candidate genes for biotic and abiotic stresses, gene expression, and genomic databases and mutant induction for functional genomics.
The Program will include plenary and concurrent sessions, evening workshops and satellite meetings, post-meeting field tour to IRRI, Los BaÃ±os.
