5th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Congress: Asia
26 Mar 2018 - 27 Mar 2018 • Bangkok, Thailand
Abstract:
The 5th Plant Genomics and Gene Editing Asia Congress will be held on the 26th and 27th of March 2018. In 2018 the meeting is moving to in Bangkok and will focus on the differing needs and circumstances of plant genomics and researchers across the Asia Pacific. In addition to focusing on the science and research to improve crops, the challenges & opportunities presented by urbanization, international trade, climate change and healthcare are also examined. It will also feature essential researchers on genome editing, crop trait development, epigenetics, phenotyping, plant microbiome and disease resistance breakthroughs for models crops such as rice, wheat, palm oil, canola and much more.

Gordon Research Conference — Lignin
05 Aug 2018 - 10 Aug 2018 • Stonehill College, Easton, MA, United States
Abstract:
Lignin is a heterogeneous, alkyl-aromatic polymer in plant cell walls. Lignin plays a key role in water and nutrient transport in plant tissues, imparts rigidity and structure to plants, and aids in defense against pathogens. The heterogeneous, recalcitrant nature of lignin leads to multiple technical challenges in understanding lignin's structure in plant cell walls and extracting it in a useful form from plant biomass for targeted chemical and material applications. Indeed, despite nearly a century of efforts, the cost effective valorization of lignin, with a few notable exceptions, still remains elusive for most biorefinery applications.
Topics:
Towards Viable Solutions for Lignin Valorization
