Plant Genomes in a Changing Environment

October 16 - 18, 2019
Wellcome Genome Campus, UK

Call for Abstracts for IWGSC main workshop speakers at PAG 2020

September 17th, 2019
San Diego, CA, USA

Abstracts for talks are now being accepted by the IWGSC for individuals who would like to present his/her work at the primary IWGSC workshop that will be held at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference XXVIII on Saturday, 11 January 2020, from 8:00-10:10 am.

Deadline: 17 September 2019

Plans are underway for the primary IWGSC workshop that will be held at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference XXVIII. The IWGSC workshop will, likely, be held on Saturday, 11 January 2020, from 8:00-10:10 am.

Abstracts for proposed talks are now being accepted by the IWGSC for individuals who would like to present his/her work at the workshop. The presentation must focus on work related to the development or utilization of wheat genomic resources. One does not have to be an early career individual. Anyone may submit a nomination or an individual may self-nominate. Priority will be given to ideas and talks that have not been presented recently at a PAG conference.

Please note that the PAG organizers are enforcing several rules to ensure diversity of speakers at the various workshops. These include a prohibition on the same individual speaking in the same workshop two years in a row and a prohibition on giving the same or a highly similar talk in more than one PAG workshop. We will work with the organizers to enforce this rule and are setting an early deadline for abstract submissions to assist in this effort.

If you are interested in giving a presentation at the IWGSC workshop, please send the title and an abstract (up to 250 words) of your proposed talk to Kellye Eversole ( eversole@eversoleassociates.com ) by Tuesday, 17 September 2019. If you would like to recommend an individual for a talk, please also contact me with your suggestion.


Bioinformatics for Crop Plants

November 18 - 21, 2019
Wellcome Genome Campus Cambridge, UK

This course will introduce plant biologists to methods and approaches
for analysing the genomic data. During the course participants will learn
about comparative genomics using Ensembl, analyse variation data with
Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor and the European Variation Archive,
and explore the concepts of genome wide association studies (GWAS).
The course is aimed at plant biologists, in particular those with wet-lab
experience needing to learn about methods and approaches for
analysing plant genomic data. It will help those wanting to start basic
comparative genomics, identification of genetic variation and using
public data to interpret new findings.


IPAG: International Plant & Animal Genome XXVIII

January 11 - 15, 2020
San Diego, CA, USA

The Plant & Animal Genome Conference (PAG) is designed to provide a forum on recent developments and future plans for plant & animal genome projects. Consisting of technical presentations, poster sessions, exhibits and workshops, the conference is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and applications on this internationally important project.
