Dear all ICGI members:
You are cordially invited to attend the 2020 International Cotton Genome Initiative (ICGI) Research Conference to be held from August 3-6, 2020, at the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Rehovot, Israel, hosted by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Agricultural Research Organization and the Israeli cotton community.
This conference is expected to be particularly important, in that the reference genome sequences of two cultivated tetraploid cottons and their diploid progenitor genomes have been assembled. Accordingly, this will be an opportunity to discuss the post-genomic era for cotton and benefit from the collective skills and interests of the worldwide cotton research community to apply the benefits of the genome sequences to addressing fundamental questions and accelerating practical precision breeding of cotton.
Full details of the meeting, registration information, and hotel information, are available at https://www.cottongen.org/icgi/2020-conference/home.
You are fully responsible for your associated costs (visas, travel, lodging, etc), as well as making and paying for your hotel reservations.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2020 ICGI Res Conf.
