Plant Genomes' Day 2014

June 4th, 2014 - Toulouse, France  /  Achievements, challenges and future for  plant genomics

 The French Plant Genomic Resource Center (CNRGV) was created 10 years ago by the INRA based on a French ministry decision. The aim of this new structure was to maintain and valorize genomic resources developed at that time in the framework of first plants genomic large-scale projects. During the past decade the CNRGV has developed its activity, offering more and more resources and new technical services following the goal to meet the needs of the plant genomic community and support their efforts.

Centre Pierre Baudis

To celebrate our tenth anniversary we want to take the opportunity to look back at the contributions of genomics in plant research and to imagine the future.

 Thus we are very pleased to invite you to attend the Plant Genomes' Day which will take place in Toulouse on June 4th, 2014.

During this day, scientists who played a major role in the development of plant genomics will present several major projects and share their points of view regarding the future and expectations. In addition to the opportunity to attend fascinating conferences, we will also take time to exchange.  The conference will be followed by a friendly social event.
