Dear all

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

I am writing this mail to share with you that we will be having "Genomics
-Assisted Breeding" workshop in Town & Country Room on January 18, 2009
(Tuesday) during 10.20 am- 12.30 pm in Town & Country Hotel during Plant and
Animal Genome (PAG XIX) conference. We have got a panel of eminent
scientists and excellent speakers who will discuss the examples and
prospects of application of modern genomics approaches in crop improvement
of several leading crops. The programme of the workshop is available at
