Call For Papers

It is our pleasure to announce the third Current Opinion Conference on Plant Genome Evolution, to be held in Amsterdam, 6-8 September 2015. We are delighted to be holding this (now biannual) event again after a very successful first and second meeting in 2011 and 2013 where renowned plant researchers gave inspiring talks and where many discussed their latest research in the field.

For the 2015 meeting, we are even more ambitious than the previous years and are trying to put together an even more exciting programme focused on (new) plant genomes, natural variation, domestication, epigenetics, and systems biology, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.

This third meeting will present the unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights in plant genome evolution, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Prof. Gerald A. Tuskan (Oak Ridge National Laboratory and JGI, USA) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Sunday, opening the meeting.

(Novel) Genome projects
Genome and epigenome evolution
Gene and genome duplication
Genomic views on hybridization, heterosis, domestication, and speciation
Genomic variation and population genomics
Bioinformatics, systems and synthetic biology

Conference Chairs
Yves Van de Peer, Ghent University, Belgium
J. Chris Pires, University of Missouri, USA
