> Subject:	Invitation to ESF-Wellcome Trust Conference on Crop
> Genomics, Trait Analysis and Breeding, 8-11 November 2006
> 
> Dear Colleague
>  
> The European Science Foundation-Wellcome Trust Crop Genomics and Trait
> Analysis to be held at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus at Hinxton,
> near Cambridge UK on Nov 8-11 this year. Registration is open until
> Oct 15 and can be completed at http://www.esf.org/conferences/lc06204
> . Appended find the programme of confirmed speakers and a poster
> advertising the meeting.
>  
> The theme of the meeting is understanding and applying genomic
> information to crop plant improvement. Recent advances in structural,
> comparative and functional genomics are establishing new approaches
> for identifying genes and genotypes in the complex genomes of crop
> plants. This knowledge underpins new approaches to crop plant
> improvement for food and biomass production.
>  
> The meeting will address the following topics:
>  
> *		Progress in genome analysis in the major crops 
> *		Genome dynamics, polyploidy and domestication 
> *		Population genomics and evolution 
> *		Marker assisted breeding and trait analysis 
> *		New approaches to genome sequencing, polymorphism
> detection and informatics 
> *		Technology priorities in food and renewable resource
> production, sustainable agriculture and the environment
> 
> Travel and accomodation bursaries are available for a limited number
> of students. A significant number of talks will be selected from
> submitted abstracts, so the meeting is a good opportunity to present
> work in progress.
>  
> Hinxton is close to Cambridge and London Stansted airport.
>  
> We look forward to seeing you in Hinxton in November.
