Plant & Animal Genome ASIA 2013

Online information: http://tinyurl.com/8p8rft5


In response to the expanding global population, worldwide climate changes, and dramatic plant and animal genome research occurring in Asia Pacific, the organizers of the Plant and Animal Genome Conference are planning a short version of PAG to be held in Singapore, in March of 2013.

This will be in addition to PAG XXI in San Diego in January 2013.

We envision the first PAG Asia to be a 2 and 1/2 day meeting, consisting of plenary talks, workshops, a poster section, and an area for tabletop exhibits.
