AGBT announces inaugural Agriculture Meeting

This is a critical moment in agricultural science. As our earth continues to change at a rapid rate, leaders in these fields must come together and further the integration of their respective fields. This meeting will focus on the global impacts of breakthroughs made possible through innovations in agricultural genomics, which will improve productivity and sustainability in crop and livestock production.

Our commitment

Collaboration among scientists helped us survive a global pandemic like no other. It is this same collaboration that will help us build a more sustainable world. As a recognized cornerstone for the genomics research community, Advances in Genome Biology and Technology is committed to bringing together the world’s leading genome researchers, data scientists, breeders, policy influencers, funders, and technology innovators, providing a space where the brightest minds in agriscience and agricultural genomics to come together and seek solutions for global issues in agriculture and genomics.

Join us at our inaugural Agriculture meeting.
