Seed Biotechnologies:
Filling the Gap between the Public and Private Sectors

Seed Biotechnology Center
University of California, Davis
May 11-12, 2009

The Seed Biotechnology Center at UC Davis is celebrating it's 10th year! To help us commemorate this event, we are hosting a symposium that will focus on the topics which are most relevant to the seed industry today.

The issues facing the seed industry are not confined to either the public or private sector. However, issues of intellectual property, confidentiality, and competition often complicate public-private interactions. Through this symposium, we will bring together scientists from universities, government and private industry to network and discuss technological advancements in plant breeding, seed biology and their applications in agriculture, as well as how to educate the next generation of plant scientists.  

Keynote speakers for this event are as follows:
Rob Dirks, Rijk Zwaan
Molly Jahn, University of Wisconsin
Mathilde Causse, INRA, France

This is a free symposium, but registration is strongly encouraged.
Funding for this event is provided the following sponsors:
UC Discovery Grant
College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UC Davis
