G2P-SOL at the SOLCUC2017 meeting
The SOLCUC2017 meeting took place in Valencia, Spain from September 3-6, 2017 and gathered 440 researchers working in Solanaceae and Cucurbitaceae Genomics. Researchers from more than 40 different countries presented the latest advances in genomic research for these two important plant families.
In addition to being the local organizers, G2P-SOL partners were chairs of a large number of scientific sessions (see programme here), presented their work as invited speakers, in oral presentations and a number of poster presentations.
G2P-SOL member in the Local Organizing Committee was Jaime Prohens (UPV).
G2P-SOL members as chairs of sessions and members of the International Scientific Committee:
Session I BIODIVERSITY: GENOMES GALORE and CROP DIVERSITY I – Chair: Maria Jose Diez, UPV
Session II BIODIVERSITY: GENOMES GALORE AND CROP DIVERSITY II – Chair: Giovanni Giuliano, ENEA
Session VIII FRUIT AND TUBER TRAITS – Chair: Glenn Bryan, JHI
Parallel Session III: Watermelon pumpkin and other Cucurbitaceae: Session VI PEPPER and EGGPLANT – Chair: Sergio Lanteri, UniTO
Parallel Session X ROUND TABLE SOLCUC Genomics Research: The companies’ view – chair: Jaime Prohens, UPV
From those scientific presentations, we highlight three which are directly related to G2P-SOL:
"The eggplant genome reveals paleopolyploid origin of fruit ripening" by Giovanni Giuliano
"The value of linked open data for Solanaceae" by Richard Finkers
"Genome evolution patten in the Solanaceae and genetic relationships in the eggplant complexes" by Sergio Lanteri
