A joint meeting of Fodder Crops and Amenity Grasses Section and Protein Crops Working Group of EUCARPIA-Oil and Protein Crops Section
Breeding Grasses and Protein Crops in the Era of Genomics
Invitation

On behalf of Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry, we kindly invite you to the joint meeting of Fodder Crops and Amenity Grasses Section and Protein Crops Working Group of EUCARPIA-Oil and Protein Crops Section to be held in Vilnius, Lithuania. Breeding of grasses and protein crops is on the verge of exploiting the full potential of genomics with methods and technologies such as genomic selection and genome editing gaining momentum in an ever-increasing number of plant species. To make the most of these achievements, it is vital to share experience and insights into the future horizons of grass and protein crop breeding with the research community. Common plenary sessions and free access to crop-specific sessions will facilitate communication between the two related sections of EUCARPIA.

Date: September 11 – 14, 2017.

Venue: Crowne Plaza Hotel in Vilnius, Lithuania.
