Transforming Potential Conference
November 19, 2018 - November 22, 2018
9th Canadian Workshop on Fusarium Head Blight & 4th Canadian Wheat Symposium
Recent scientific discoveries in areas such as gene editing, disease resistance genes, food quality and new agronomic tools are transforming research capacity in Canada. This 2018 joint conference will provide a venue for scientists, industry, and producers to learn and discuss recently discovered technologies that will enable the transformative development of new products that can combat problems caused by Fusarium species in cereal crops (9th Canadian Workshop on Fusarium Head Blight) and advance wheat research (4th Canadian Wheat Symposium). The program, including two symposia with keynote speakers, concurrent breakout sessions for oral talks and poster presentations, will present cutting edge scientific discoveries on FHB and wheat with the goal of developing new collaborative and interdisciplinary research to improve the quality and productivity of cereal crops in Canada.
