MEDICINE AND HEALTH SCIENCES
"Explore the exciting era of precision medicine. Come share the latest updates in cancer biology, stem cell therapy, molecular diagnostic tools and 'omics' technology. A great opportunity to establish research links from bench to bedside"
FOOD AND AGRICULTURE
"The world population is projected to reach 9.7 billion in 2050. That is like having additional one and a half China to feed. Food production through conventional ways, however, seems very challenging under extreme weather and finite resources. Thus, genetic researches and innovations have important roles to ensuring the sustainability of food and agricultural productions worldwide and ultimately to avoid food crisis. Let’s all join our efforts together in this Congress to make this a reality."
FORESTRY, CONSERVATION AND BIODIVERSITY
"Recognise the importance of conserving the biodiversity of our ecosystems. Our forests are an extremely important natural resource that can be sustainably harvested and managed to produce a diversity of commodities of economic importance may it be plants, animals or even microbes. Join us in promoting conservation effort to ensure sustainability not only ecologically but also genetically."
