SECOND ANNUAL

Crops in silico

SYMPOSIUM AND WORKSHOP

 

 

 

June 26-28th 2017
University of Oxford, UK

 

This interactive gathering aims to harness the great strides in understanding of plant function from genes to whole plants, to accelerate forward approaches to crop breeding and bioengineering.

 

Who should attend?

Join experts in experimentation, agronomy, physiology, plant development, phenotyping, as well as experts in computational modeling, software development, and data visualization.
