  • At The Forefront Of Plant Research

    15 - 16 June 2017

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    At The Forefront Of Plant Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB conferences@vib.be [] Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences [] plantbiologygenomics
  • Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition)

    23 - 24 September 2021

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition) https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last years has been breathtaking. The first three editions (September 2013, January 2016, January 2018) were a roaring success and we are pleased to announce the 4th edition of GESB in beautiful Ghent in September, 2020. Travel Grants We offer 5 travel grants to international attendees, which will reimburse travel costs up to 400 Euros. Are you interested in attending GESB20 and want to have a chance on a travel grant? Submit your motivation below by clicking on the 'Apply for a grant' button before 24 June 2021. The organizing committee will notify you of your travel grant acceptance by the end of June. No registration is needed before submitting a travel grant proposal. When you’re awarded with a travel grant you will receive a practical email containing the next steps. Note that being awarded a travel grant does not mean being registered for the conference.
