The SOL Meeting 2016

SolGenomics: From Advances to Applications

Over 300 scientists and students will convene at the campus of the University of California in Davis (USA) to attend the 13th SolGenomics Conference on 12-16 September 2016.

The annual meeting brings the community together to share the latest developments in research, application and production of solanaceous crops including potato, tomato, pepper, eggplant, tobacco and petunia. Particular focus will be on the advances made in the applications of genomics to these crops which hold global agronomic importance.  

Research will be showcased to an international audience including industry and public sector professionals. Participants are invited to join in discussions across the whole field of genomics in over 14 themed sessions including “Diversity and Taxonomy”, “Genomics-Assisted Breeding” and “Flowers, Seeds and Fruit”.

TomGEM will be represented by both Prof. Cathie Martin (The John Innes Centre, UK) and Prof. Mondher Bouzayen (Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse, France). Cathie will chair the session on “Metabolites, Flavor & Quality”, whilst Mondher will deliver a keynote entitled “The Regulatory Network Controlling Fruit Ripening: A Complex Interaction Between Multi-hormonal Signaling and Developmental Factors”.
