Plant Synthetic Biology is the topic of a dedicated session at the GARNet2016 meeting this September, in addition to a workshop on CRISPR-Cas. If you missed out on the GARNet/OpenPlant CRISPR workshop last year, this is a great chance to get familiar with this increasingly important technique.
From the GARNet website:
GARNet2016: Innovation in the Plant Sciences. September 6th-7th 2016, Cardiff.
Registration is now open for the exciting GARNet2016 meeting. We have put together a set of talks on a broad range of subjects that are all linked by their use of novel experimental techniques.
Session 1: Frontiers in Plant Imaging
Session 2: Enabling the Translational Pipeline
Session 3: Plant Synthetic Biology
Session 4: Genomics tools for Gene Discovery
Session 5: Cell Signaling
In addition we will have three workshops that aim to support new technologies that are available to plant scientists:
* Pre-Meeting Workshop: Finding your Arabidopsis Gene in Wheat.
Organiser: Philippa Borrill and Cristobal Uauy
* Workshop 1: Usage and Application development within Araport.
Organiser: Agnes Chan and Chris Town
* Workshop 2: Introduction to CRISPR-Cas, troubleshooting target design and verification of mutants. Organiser: Vladimir Nekrasov and Amanda Hopes
We encourage young researchers to participate in our extended poster session and to apply to give a 2 minute flash presentation.
GARNet will have at least £500 available to support travel of UK-based PhD students to the meeting. This money will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis. Please contact Geraint Parry (firstname.lastname@example.org) about the availability of these travel scholarships.
