Dear all

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

I am writing this mail to share with you that like earlier years, we will be having "Genomics-Assisted Breeding" workshop in Town & Country Room on January 15, 2013 (Tuesday) during 10.20 am- 12.30 pm in Town & Country
Hotel during Plant and Animal Genome (PAG XXI) conference. We have got a panel of eminent scientists and excellent speakers who will discuss the examples and prospects of application of modern genomics approaches in
crop improvement of several leading crops. The programme of the workshop is available at  http://pag13.mapyourshow.com/5_0/sessions/sessiondetails.cfm?ScheduledSessionID=1CA1&CFID=86989612&CFTOKEN=54a7f80cf560036e-681B72E1-A265-FBDE-312D62D4D6184A8E and paste below.
