The SOL Meeting 2016
SolGenomics: From Advances to Applications
The annual meeting brings the community together to share the latest developments in research, application and production of solanaceous crops. Particular focus will be on the advances made in the applications of genomics to solanaceous crops which hold global agronomic importance. As the debate will include solanaceous food crops (potato, tomato, pepper, eggplant) this event will be of great significance for the G2P-SOL project.
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”.
G2P-SOL will be represented by Dr Ilan Paran (The Agricultural Research Organisation of Israel – the Volcani Centre) and Dr Glenn Bryan (The James Hutton Institute). Glenn is part of the scientific committee and he will chair a session on “Tubers and Root Systems”. Furthermore, Pietro Gramazio (Universitat Politècnica de València) will contribute with an oral presentation on “GBS-assisted recovery of “lost” introgressions in advanced backcrosses of Solanum incanum to cultivated eggplant (S. melongena)”.
