Dear All,

Wish you a very Happy New Year - 2018!

Like earlier years, we are organizing Genomics-Assisted Breeding 
workshop in the PAG XXVI conference as mentioned below. We have a 
panel of eminent speakers in our workshop.

I would like to request you to kindly block your calendar for the 
same and participate in the workshop.

I am looking forward to seeing you all in San Diego.

Many thanks and kind regards
