Evolutionary Genomics for Plant Models and Crops

From 13 May 2024 until 17 May 2024 - BIOPOLIS-CIBIO, Vairão, Portugal (Face-to-face and Online)
Evolutionary Genomics for Plant Models and Crops
This workshop will present major on-going research topics in plant evolutionary genomics, covering both methodological and biological questions, fundamental and applied perspectives, model plants and crops.
Each theme (day) will be covered by 2 talks given by international specialists and a round table with both speakers moderated by an in-house researcher from the field.
Talks will be 1h30 research-oriented lectures (with 30 min of a general/large scope introduction on the subject). 
A lot of interaction is expected during these lectures: questions will be asked during the talks and at the round table. 
The workshop is also meant to be a platform for connecting students and labs in this field, internationally. Most speakers will stay the whole week.
This is the 3rd edition of the workshop, but note that 2/3 of the speakers are new. The course was a success in 2022 and 2023, and we are glad to propose it again in 2024.
