Registration Open for SolGenomics Conference

The 13th SolGenomics Conference will be held Sept.12-16, 2016 on the campus of the University of California, Davis.
Since 2003, the solanaceae genomics community meets annually to highlight scientific research progress in the solanaceae species. This international conference brings together over 300 scientists and students to discuss the latest advances in the applications of research to production of solanaceous crops, including tomato, pepper, potato, eggplant, and petunia.
This year, the conference has been scheduled and located to highlight the considerable contributions, resources and advances that have been made by the University of California, Davis, and the many agricultural and genomic enterprises in the northern and Central Valley of California. As solanaceae crops are major economic and agricultural products of this region, the meeting will include presentations and tours related to the application of advances in the genomics of the solanaceae.
Davis is easily accessed from the Sacramento International Airport and is about an hour from major California destinations, including the wine producing regions of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, scenic Lake Tahoe and vibrant San Francisco.
