The PAG ASIA conference is now entering its 4rd year and will be held June 6-8, 2016 in Singapore. There will be approximately 18 workshops, 6 plenary talks, industry workshops, a poster session, and an expo of 30+ tabletop exhibits, from leading companies in the life sciences industry.
Nearly 300 attendees have registered in past years, working in all areas of agrigenomics including next generation sequencing, phenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, data management, and new technologies.
Each workshop is 2 hours long, with 6 speakers. Twenty minutes will be allotted for each speaker.
