394 Symposium--the Prominent Role of Plant Genetic Resources and Genebanks in the Post-Genomic Era

Oral Session
C08 Plant Genetic Resources
To meet the challenge of feeding the future, we must mine the biodiversity captured in thousands of accessions stored in seed banks.  Enhanced genomic, phenomic, and bioinformatic technologies are enabling us to design novel, systematic, concerted global approaches to move forward. This symposium will highlight the prominent role of genetic resources in the post-genomic era.
