The Conference

will be held from 27 to 31 October 2020, in Yalta (Russia). It is planned to work in thematic areas, organize discussions, “round tables” and schools of young scientists.

The conference will present the results of studying genomes and preservation of plant genetic resources based on the latest research in the field of genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, and practical use of the world's gene pool of cultivated plants in breeding. It is planned to discuss promising areas of joint work on fundamental and applied aspects of studying plant biological diversity.


The conference program includes the following areas:

  1. Molecular, genetic and information technologies in working with bioresource collections and in plant breeding.
  2. Clonal micropropagation of plants: theoretical and applied aspects.
  3. Creation of plant collections in vitro, cryopreservation, methods of preserving the gene pool.
  4. Gene pool and breeding of fruit, berry, ornamental and other plants.

            A meeting of the special session of the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) on plant biotechnology and genomics for scientists who receive grants from the RSF is scheduled for the conference. We would like to draw the participants' attention to the fact that they can use the grant funds to take part in the conference if they present the results of the RSF project at it.

During the conference, it is planned to conduct excursions to the Arboretum of FSFIS "NBG-NSC", “Biotron" complex, as well as field tours to specially protected natural territories and wineries.

The working languages of the conference are Russian and English.
