First International Workshop on Systems Biology for Human & Plant Nutrition
March 22 - March 24
The ICRISAT- Center of Excellence in Genomics & Systems Biology (CEGSB) (cegsb.icrisat.org) has recently initiated systems biology research under three different modules namely gut microbiome, soil microbiome and trait biology. To take this further CEGSB is organizing a three day international workshop entitled “First International Workshop on Systems Biology for Human & Plant Nutrition”. This workshop will bring together ca. 25 leading researchers in the above mentioned areas from 10 countries. The main objective of the workshop is to establish strong partnership globally for better understanding the impact of legumes-based diet on the gut microbiota of children, soil microbiome for enhanced crop productivity and complex traits of agronomic importance in ICRISAT mandate crops.
