International Symposium on Plant Transformation Biotechnologies

Dear colleagues,

We would like to encourage you to register and submit abstract for poster presentation in the “2016 International Symposium on Plant Transformation Biotechnologies” (see detailed information and website below). This meeting will gather ~20 international and national renowned speakers to present their latest work on cutting-edge plant transformation technologies and related area. I would also like to remind you that there will be opportunities for short talks selected from submitted abstracts. In view of the importance of transformation technologies in biology, the poster content can be any scope in biology NOT limited to direct relevance with transformation biotechnologies. In particular, we would like to encourage junior scientists to present your exciting work and consider this meeting as an excellent opportunity for networking with leading scientists in this important research area.
