Dear All,

Wish you a very Happy New Year – 2017!

Like earlier years, we are organizing Genomics-Assisted Breeding workshop in the PAG XXV conference as mentioned below. We have a panel of eminent speakers in our workshop.

I would like to request you to kindly block your calendar for the same and participate in the workshop.

I am looking forward to seeing you in San Diego.

Many thanks and kind regards

Rajeev
