The 1st International Conference on Genetic Resources and Biotechnology – ICGRB 2018

Conference Venue

IPB International Convention Center, Bogor, Indonesia (http://www.ipbconventionhotel.com). Botani Square Building Lt. 2, Jl. Pajajaran Raya, Bogor Tengah, Kota Bogor, Jawa Barat 16127, Indonesia.

Conference Scope

Crop improvement plays an important role in achieving food security and coping with adverse climate changes. Effective crop improvement program requires diverse genetic resources and will benefit from successful cooperation between genetic resource-rich countries and technology-rich countries. Further opportunities will arise from progress in the implementation of international conventions on access of genetic resources and the< benefit sharing arising from their uses, as well as further advancements in science and technology.
This conference will discuss ideas, experiences, and research results on the following areas:
    1. Policy, regulation, and intellectual property rights related to plant genetic resources, in particular on access and benefit sharing.
    2. Information system and database management of plant genetic resources.
    3. Application of new techniques for crop improvement such as the use of genomic sequences, genome editing, and synthetic biology.
    4. Bioprospecting and economic valuation of genetic resources.
    5. Traditional knowledge associated with genetic resources.
    6. Sustainable gene bank management and in situ conservation.
Invited Speakers
  1. Mr. Akio Yamamoto – National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO), Japan: Synergy between Nagoya Protocol and ITPGRFA on Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) of Plant Genetic Resources.
  2. Prof Ramakrishna – Professor, National Law School of India University, India: IPR along the Value Chain of Plant Genetic Resources.
  3. (To be confirmed): Global Information Systems on Plant Genetic Resources.

  5. Mr. Edward Hammond – Prickly Research, Texas, USA: Digital Sequence Information on Plant Genetic Resources and Benefit Sharing Arising from their Use.
  6. Mastur, PhD. – Director of the Indonesian Center for Agricultural Biotechnology and Genetic Resources Research and Development (ICABIOGRAD), Indonesian Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (IAARD): Needs, Opportunities and Challenges for Crop Improvement in Indonesia.
  7. Prof. Suk-ha Lee – Professor, Seoul National University, Korea: Genomic-assisted Plant Breeding for Effective Crop Improvement.
  8. Prof. Dr. Hugh W. Pritchard, Senior Research Leader of Kew Royal Botanical Garden: Sustainable Genebank Management and In-situ Conservation.
  9. David Douchess – Professor, Michigan State University, USA: Recreating Superior Allele from Wild Relative or Landraces in Modern Cultivar using Genome Editing.
  10. (To be confirmed): Mass Genome Sequencing of Crops and Wild Relatives to Accelerate Crop Breeding.

Registration Information

Registration is only open for those who submit abstract of paper within the scope of the conference. All papers must be presented orally. If a paper has multiple authors, up to two authors can register by submitting the same abstract and title.

Registration is free of charge, but the number of accepted participants is limited to 100. The organizer will select the best among the submitted abstracts that passed the peer review process, and will notify registrants whose papers are acceptable for oral presentation during the conference and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings by 7 June 2018.

Early submission of the full manuscript for the proceedings will improve your chance of being accepted as a participant.
