III National Conference Genetics & Genomics in improving plants - from a model plant to a new variety, Poznań, 5-7 November 2014
The advances in research on plant genomes and molecular systsems have led to a dynamic progress in the areas of biological and agricultural sciences that can benefit from better knowledge on the plant functions. The modern plant breeding also uses techniques that allow for a knowledge-based usage of genetic materials. Polish membership in European Union stimulates further research, but also opens new possibilities of practical applications of scientific results. We hope that during the Conference you will have an opportunity to present your achievements in all fascinating areas of plant science that you represent and discuss them with other researchers and breeders.
The 11th European Foundation for Plant Pathology (EFPP) conference was held in Kraków (Poland) from 8th to 13th September 2014. The conference was organized by the Polish Phytopathological Society on behalf of the EFPP. The honorary patronage was provided by Marek Sawicki ? Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Poland and Adam Wasiak, Director General of the National Forest Holding ?State Forests?.
