5th International Conference

Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding for Crop Improvement

ICRISAT, Patancheru, India

5th NGGIBCI successfully completed
5thInternational conference on Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding for Crop Improvement (NGGIBCI-V) was organized at the ICRISAT headquarters from 18 - 20, 2015. This conference was the largest conference in the series of our earlier workshops on next generation genome sequencing (NGS) data analysis organized in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014 and NGGIBCI-V brought over >300 participants from 31 countries. This conference had a very rich scientific programme presenting high quality science with enormous impact on crop breeding. In total, 40 high quality presentations covering the use of next generation genomics for crop improvement across ten scientific sessions covering next generation genomics, Genome Sequencing and Germplasm Re-sequencing, Genomics Platforms, Trait Mapping, Genome Dynamics and Systems Biology, Genomics-Assisted Breeding - I & II, Climate Resilience Genomics and Breeding, Novel Breeding Approaches, New Horizons for Crop Improvement during three days.
ICRISAT's Centre of Excellence in Genomics (CEG) organized this International conference in collaboration with CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme (GCP) and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
KSI-Connect helped organizers of this meeting to have the live telecast of the meeting. These presentations have been made available as recorded videos through YouTube. Please click Please click or

The ICRISAT's Center of Excellence (CoE) in Genomics (CEG, as a part of Critical Focus area-Molecular Breeding is pleased to announce 5th International Conference on Next Generation Genomics and Integrated Breeding (NGGIBCI-2015) for Crop Improvement at ICRISAT Campus, Greater Hyderabad, India. This Conference is being organized in continuation of our earlier four meetings/workshops on NGS data analysis (;; and

Better communication and sharing of the ideas among scientists and stakeholders is the key to achieve the goal of global food security. This conference will provide a platform for scientists to interact with each other and present their work and discuss different aspects of modern genomics and breeding for crop improvement.

The Conference will be organized under well-structured technical sessions that will include invited lectures by eminent speakers in the fields of genetics, genomics, breeding and allied sciences. A poster session will also be arranged to encourage participation of young researchers in the conference.

This Conference will have following themes that will include presentations and discussions as follows:

Next generation genomics
Genome sequencing and germplasm re-sequencing
Genomics Platforms
Trait Mapping
Genome Dynamics and Systems Biology
Genomics-Assisted Breeding - I
Genomics-Assisted Breeding - II
 Climate Resilience Genomics Breeding
Novel Breeding Approaches
New horizons for crop improvement

You and your colleagues and collaborators are invited to contribute to the scientifically rich meeting and explore the historical city of India in a pleasant weather!!
