Please register for 'GARNet2016: Innovation in the Plant Sciences' meeting. September 6th-7th 2016 in Cardiff.
Thanks to the support or our sponsors we have at least £500 available to support the transport and conference accommodation costs of UK-based PhD students.
This money will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis. Please contact Geraint Parry (email@example.com) about the availability of these travel scholarships.
GARNet has 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 introduce 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.
Organisers: Agnes Chan and Chris Town
* Workshop 2: Introduction to CRISPR-Cas, troubleshooting target design and verification of mutants. Organisers: Amanda Hopes and Vladimir Nekrasov
We encourage young researchers to participate in our extended poster session and to apply to give a 2 minute flash presentation.
All information about registration, conference accomodation and the scientific programme can be found at: http://garnet2016.weebly.com/
