Crop Genomics, Trait Analysis and Breeding


Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK




Michael Bevan, John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK

Robbie Waugh, Scottish Crop Research Institute, Dundee, UK


The aims of the meeting are to review progress in genomics relevant to
crop improvement and foster links between genomics, trait analysis,
breeding systems and technology priority areas.


Areas for discussion include:

*	Progress in genome analysis of 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
*	Addressing technology priorities in food and renewable resource
production, sustainable agriculture and the environment
