Dear all,
Greetings! This mail is an invitation to participate in the
"Genomics-Assisted Breeding" workshop that is scheduled in the evening (4.40
pm to 6.50 pm) of 15 January, 2007 (Monday) during the XVth  PAG Conference
in San Diego (USA). Having a panel of eminent scientists for the workshop, I
am sure that we will be having fruitful discussions on the strategies and
applications of genomics research in practical breeding. The details on the
workshop can be found at http://www.intl-pag.org/15/15-gen-breeding.html and
the programme is pasted below.
In view of above, I request you to please mark your calendar for
participating in the workshop.
Looking forward to see you in PAG and Genomics Assisted Breeding workshop.
With kind regards,
