Plant Genome Evolution

5th Conference on Plant Genome Evolution

29 September - 1 October 2019 | Melia Sitges, Sitges, Spain

This fifth PGE meeting will present a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Prof. Ilia Leitch (Kew Gardens, UK) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.

It is our great pleasure to announce the 5th Conference on Plant Genome Evolution. We are delighted to be holding this biannual event again after very successful meetings in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017, where renowned plant researchers gave inspiring talks and where many discussed their latest research in the field.

For the 2019 meeting, which will take place again in Sitges (Barcelona), Spain, Sunday September 29th – Tuesday October 1st 2019, we are trying to put together an exciting programme focused on natural variation, domestication, epigenetics, polyploidy, and systems biology of green algae and land plants, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.

This fifth PGE meeting will present a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Prof. Ilia Leitch (Kew Gardens, UK) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.
