UC Berkeley’s first ever, student-run, Plant Genome Engineering Symposium (PGES) will be held from 9am to 6pm on Tuesday May 31st, 2016 at Li Ka Shing Center in Berkeley. PGES aims to expand and enrich the available knowledge about the potential for genetic engineering and modification in plant systems.

This symposium is part of the student-run DuPont Pioneer Symposium series which aims to provide a free and accessible forum where the next generation of scientists can interact with both public and private experts and learn about opportunities in the agricultural sector.

Please register now to attend the PGES. Space is limited. If you are a student, please submit your abstract for poster presentations and short talks. Prizes will be awarded to the top posters! Coffee and lunch will be provided and a reception will follow.
