PAG 2016

9-13 January 2016 - Plant and Animal Genome Conference, San Diego, CA, USA

The IWGSC organized two workshops and a business meeting at PAG 2016.

IWGSC workshop at PAG 2016

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2016 took place on Saturday 9 January 2016 from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The workshop included a talk on the IWGSC whole genome sequencing project and other talks on the generation or use of wheat genomic resources. As usual, the workshop also included a talk by an early career award recipient. This award is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.

Organizers: Kellye Eversole and Catherine Feuillet
