Dovetail Genomics to Discuss Disruptive Technologies for Improving Disease-Resistant Crops

Although more remains to be learned, great advances have recently been made in the understanding of the molecular and genetic bases of disease resistance in plants. It is now time to deploy this knowledge to provide more durable disease resistance. Much of these advances have been enabled by improvements in analytical technologies.

In particular, high-throughput DNA sequencing enable detailed analysis of food crops and their pathogens. It is now possible to characterize the resistance gene repertoires of plants and variability in pathogen populations. This information can be used as the foundation for rational deployment of resistance genes to maximize the evolutionary hurdle for pathogens to become virulent.

In this webinar, sponsored by Dovetail Genomics, participants will learn about the genetic basis for disease resistance in plants and the value of high-quality reference genomes in crop research and improvement. In addition, participants will take away an understanding of how genomics is speeding up crop breeding programs.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. Richard Michelmore of the University of California, Davis. Dr. Michelmore currently is a professor of Genetics in the Departments of Plant Sciences, Molecular & Cellular Biology, and Medical Microbiology & Immunology; and Director of the Genome Center at UC-Davis. He earned his doctorate in natural science from the University of Cambridge. Dr. Michelmore’s research focuses on pathogens, genetic changes resistance in plants and development of disease resistance in crops.

LabRoots will host the event May 31, 2017, beginning at 9:00 a.m. PDT, 12:00 p.m. EDT. To read more about this event, learn about the continuing education credits offered, and to register for free, click here.
