Dear All,

A very Happy New Year!
I believe that many of you will be attending the Plant and Animal Genome Conference (Jan 14-18, 2012) in San Diego (USA). Like earlier years, we are organizing "Genomics-Assisted Breeding" workshop. We have an excellent panel of eminent scientists for speaking in this workshop (pl see schedule below). I would like to invite you to attend the workshop and therefore request you to please mark your calendar.
Looking forward to see you in San Diego and your participation in the workshop.
Many thanks and kind regards
Kind regards
