UC Berkeley is hosting a student run Plant Genome Engineering Symposium (PGES) to highlight the current progress being made in the field of plant genetic engineering. Prominent researchers in the field will present a series of talks throughout the course of the day. This event is freely available to all!

Keynote speakers include:

  • Jennifer Doudna, UC Berkeley
  • Daniel Voytas, University of Minnesota
  • Dominique Loqué, JBEI

  • Peggy Lemaux, UC Berkeley
  • Brian Staskawicz, UC Berkeley
  • Mark Cigan, DuPont Pioneer

In addition, there will be student talks and a poster session with prizes for those who wish to present their own research progress-- we encourage you to apply!

Funding for the student-run UC Berkeley PGES is provided by DuPont Pioneer. DuPont has sponsored over 50 independently organized symposia around the world since 2008 with the goal of providing a free and accessible forum where the next generation of scientists can interact with both public and private experts, build key organizational and management skills, and learn about opportunities in the agricultural sector.
