The Sorghum & Millet Workshop will be held at the 2022 Plant & Animal Genome Conference (PAG XXIX), January 8-12, 2022, San Diego, CA. Specifically, the Sorghum & Millet Workshop will be held at the conference on Sunday, January 9, 2022.
If you wish your recent work to be considered for an oral presentation at the PAG XXIX Sorghum & Millet Workshop, please send a draft abstract (250 words maximum) to me (see my email at the end of this announcement) as soon as possible as there are still some slots open.
The theme for this special workshop is the growing role of genomics in sorghum and millet research. This workshop is designed to provide an opportunity for sorghum and millet researchers to have an annual gathering at the International Plant & Animal Genome Conference (PAG) to share their latest and important research findings. The specific goal of the workshop is two folds: (1) to update participants with the latest knowledge and genomic technology about genome research and their application in crop improvement, and (2) to stimulate more effective scientific communication among the sorghum and millet research communities throughout the world.
Thank you for your interest and participation in the workshop. Look forward to receiving your abstracts!
