Title: Plant research and application with next-generation sequencing

Abstract:
Our goals of current scientific research in plant area are to develop approaches to improve molecular breeding and promote the study of plant research. A unique area that can provide the fundamental bases for achieving these objectives is through an understanding of the ever-evolving genetic makeup, which can be achieved through studies in genomics and computational biological research. The Plant research and application with next-generation sequencing presentation, to be held in UPSC, Nov 2,2011, will emphasize the latest advances in genomic technologies, bioinformatics developments, and their relevant biological findings, with a focus on what next-generation sequencing can bring for plant research.

It will provide the information on the newest of sequencing technologies, their development and discoveries, divided to several levels: De novo sequencing, Re-sequencing, Epigenetic level, RNA level, Protein level.

We believe the presentation will give you good methods to develop current research and provide the best opportunity for building lasting collaborations. We especially welcome your input and proposals.
