GARNet is pleased to announce that the call for abstracts for our forthcoming GARNet 2014 conference is now OPEN!

The conference, Arabidopsis: The Ongoing Green Revolution, to be held at the University of Bristol on 9-10 September 2014, will focus on five core themes:

  1. Genome Biology
  2. Physiology and Productivity
  3. Natural Variation
  4. Systems and Synthetic Biology
  5. Plant Interactions with their Environment

We invite abstracts of up to 250 words, which fit one of these themes, to be submitted on or before Sunday 1 June 2014. All submissions will be considered to display a poster at the conference, and selected abstracts will be chosen to give an oral presentation.

For more information on the abstract submission criteria, and for details of how to submit, please visit: If you have any questions, please email Lisa Martin at

Don't forget, if you haven't yet registered for the conference, you can do so now! Registration costs just £150 for two days of excellent speakers, networking opportunities, posters and a drinks reception on the afternoon of 9 September. You are also warmly invited to attend our three-course conference dinner at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel on 9 September, which costs £44 per head. For details, please see:
