Background

Recent progresses of functional genomics in crops have provided huge and very valuable information for crop genetic improvement. This Symposium will present and review recent progress in the general area of crop genomics and molecular breeding and to promote exchange and collaboration. The symposium will feature keynote speeches, plenary presentations by world-renowned experts and young scientists in the field, and posters contributed by the participants to present and discuss advances in molecular and genomic understanding of the key traits, new ideas and strategies of crop improvement, development and applications of genomic technologies in crop breeding programs.

This Symposium will be organized as a collaborative activity between the National Key Laboratory of Crop Genetic Improvement (NKLCGI) and Molecular Breeding, a Springer-Nature journal. A number of superior scientists in the Editorial Board will be welcomed.
