第五届基因组学与作物遗传改良国际学术会议-杂种优势暨120周年校庆系列学术活动

5th International Symposium on Genomics and Crop Genetic Improvement-Heterosis

(October 22-25, 2018, Wuhan)

Presented by the Huazhong Agricultural University



Background:

Although heterosis has been recognized for well over a century, its molecular basis has remained a matter of debate and is surprisingly poorly understood. Recent progress has provided valuable information about the underpinnings of heterosis by comparing genetic experiment and sequence analyses in the hybrids and their parents. The conference will present recent genomic breakthroughs aiming to sharing advances of heterosis researches and its utilization in plant breeding for global food security. The conference will feature keynote speeches, plenary speeches by world-renowned experts in the field, and poster presentations contributed by the participants, to discuss the progress of modern genomics and accelerate the genetic improvement of crops heterosis.

This conference will be dedicated to Professor Tingdong Fu in honor of his contribution to canola heterosis utilization and in recognition of his contribution to discover of polima cytoplasmic male sterility. A number of scientists in canola heterosis utilization will be welcomed.

We could have the following themes:

Moden genomic researches may accelerate the genetic improvement of crops heterosis
