It is our pleasure to announce the third Current Opinion Conference on Plant Genome Evolution, to be held in Amsterdam, 6-8 September 2015. We are delighted to be holding this (now biannual) event again after a very successful first and second meeting in 2011 and 2013 where renowned plant researchers gave inspiring talks and where many discussed their latest research in the field.
For the 2015 meeting, we are even more ambitious than the previous years and are trying to put together an even more exciting programme focused on (new) plant genomes, natural variation, domestication, epigenetics, and systems biology, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.
This third meeting will present the unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Prof. Gerald A. Tuskan (Oak Ridge National Laboratory and JGI, USA) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.
Using Elsevier's new app, you can browse the scientific programme by days, topic or speaker, create your own personal programme, locate rooms and exhibitor stands on the floor plans, and more. Before first use, you will need to download the latest conference data and then afterwards, you can use the app offline.
