Dear all,
Greetings! This mail is an invitation to participate in the
"Genomics-Assisted Breeding" workshop that is scheduled in the evening (5.40
pm to 7.50 pm ) of 14 January, 2008 (Monday) during the XVIth  PAG
Conference in San Diego (USA). Having a panel of eminent scientists for the
workshop, we hope to have fruitful discussions on the strategies and
applications of genomics research in practical breeding. The details on the
workshop can be found at http://www.intl-pag.org/16/16-gen-breeding.html
and the programme is pasted below.
In view of above, I request you to please mark your calendar for
participating in the workshop.
Looking forward to see you in PAG and Genomics Assisted Breeding workshop
(Town and Country Room).
Thanking you.
With kind regards,


5.40 pm
