New Breeding Techniques Platform

6th Plant genomics and gene editing congress: Europe

14 - 15 May 2018, Rotterdam NL

Plant research and its associated technologies have improved dramatically over the last 5 years as a result of the revolutionary breakthroughs including new gene editing technologies and reduction in the cost of sequencing. Many plants have now been successfully sequenced and a wide range of biological data sets made available. As a result, plant scientists are now more than ever making use of state of the art technology platforms to help explain biological principals, advance research and therefore enable benefits such as crop improvement / breeding etc. by harnessing the greater understanding of plant genomes and our conference is the perfect place to find out more about these methods and systems to advance your own research.

Plant biology Europe

18 - 21 June 2018, Copenhagen DK

PBE is jointly organized by FESBP and EPSO, as a result of a merger between the previous individual EPSO and FESPB conferences. With a multidisciplinary approach to plant science in a global context, the conference aims to collect speakers and presentations that cover wide ranging scientific and policy related themes within plant science, thereby showcasing state-of-the-art scientific developments and contributions to policy shaping towards plants science at the European and national levels. Plant Biology Europe is the biggest of its kind in Europe. PBE is a biennial event, taking place next time in June of 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2018 PBE is hosted and organised by the University of Copenhagen. PBE2018 will focus on the following themes:

  • Phenotyping on different scales
  • Photosynthetic diversity
  • New breeding technologies/Genome based breeding
  • Seeds for the future
  • Niche crops
  • Plant Microbiome/Biotic Interactions
  • Natural Products
  • Environmental Resilience
  • Genome evolution 


5 - 10 August 2018, Montpellier FR

The IPMB congress is a triennial meeting gathering 1500-2000 plant molecular biologists from all over the world since 1984. The IPMB2015 was held in Brazil (Iguazu) and was preceded by IPMB2012 in Korea (Jeju Island) and IPMB2009 in USA (St Louis). Each of the previous meetings demonstrates the importance to develop multidisciplinary approaches to face climate changes and population increase. IPMB2018 will follow up with an attractive scientific program highlighting major impact recent discoveries from basic molecular biology to crop biotechnology. Combination of plenary and parallel sessions will demonstrate the importance of plant molecular biology to fulfill the need for the development of an ecologically intensive farming. The congress will take place in a conference center offering all facilities in old downtown Montpellier. Nestled between the countryside, the sea and the mountains, Montpellier is the capital of the biggest wine area in the world. 


5 - 7 September 2018, Cologne GER

The general objective of the conference is to bring together scientists from academia and industry to discuss the future of food production, development of new products and processes and new research opportunities to ensure global food and nutrition security. The conference focuses on Orphan Crops, Functional Food and Innovative Food Sources and Production Systems. The aim is to provide an opportunity for a lively exchange among all stakeholders in the Food Security field. You can find more information about the scientific programme, registration process and call for abstracts on the conference website.



20 - 22 September 2018, Rome IT

Building upon the success of the  GPMB 2017, Magnus Group invites to the “ 2nd Edition of Global Conference on Plant Science and Molecular Biology” scheduled on September 20-22, 2018 at Rome, Italy. GPMB 2018 will provide a dedicated platform to peer researchers, young inspired scientists, academicians, and industrialists to meet, discuss and share the knowledge that’s still more to be revealed in the field of plant science and molecular biology.
Added Value: The series of talks, poster presentations, workshops, discussions and networking events will keep participants engaged in learning and making new connections at this Plant science Conference.

International Conference on plant science and molecular biology 

25 - 27 October 2018, Paris FR

Plant science and molecular biology is a study that concerns the molecular basis of activity between biomolecules in the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA, and proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions in the plant life. This conference anticipates the contributions of experts from diverse cross disciplines like plant biology, plant science, plant physiology, plant pathology, genetic engineering, plant ecology, plant tissue culture, botany, plant biotechnology, horticulture, forest science and those in the fields conducting plant, crop science and genetic related research.

6th Global Summit on Plant Science

29 - 30 October 2018, Valencia ES

Plant Science 2018 brings together a unique and international mix of experts, researchers and decision makers both from academia and industry across the globe to exchange their knowledge, expertise and research innovations to build a world class plant Science conference. It aims at bringing together the Professors, Researchers, and scientists, Lab Scientists to provide an international forum for the dissemination of original research results, new ideas and practical development experiences which concentrate on both theory and practices. The conference will be held in October 29-30, 2018 Madrid, Spain. The theme of the conference is: “Plants in a Changing Environment”.
