We are pleased to invite you to the final conference and workshops of ProCoGen project “Promoting Conifer Genomic Resources Conference” organised by INRA at Orléans, France, from 30th Nov. – 4th Dec. 2015.
This international event will serve as a showcase of main results achieved in the project, along with other internationally relevant achievements brought in by key invited speakers and general attendees. External researchers from similar initiatives worldwide, from complementary disciplines ranging from genomics, to molecular and population genetics, tree physiology and developmental biology, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, bioinformatics and conifer breeders, are invited to present and discuss recent and relevant results on structural, functional, comparative and translational genomics of conifer species. Emphasis will be given to broaden the coverage of key actors, from public research institutes and Universities to privately funded research organizations. External and ProCoGen keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations from external attendees and ProCoGen members will be included in the program. The number of participants will be limited to 100-120. The registration is free of charge. Meals, travel and accommodation are at the participant expenses.
