4th International Brachypodium Conference on 25-28 June 2019, in Huesca, Spain. The conference will be organized by the University of Zaragoza - Huesca Campus and will be held at the Huesca Convention Centre.
This biennial meeting follows successful conferences in France in 2011, Italy in 2013, USA in 2015, and China in 2017.
Brachypodium distachyon has proven to be an outstanding model system for functional, comparative, and other studies in plant biology and crop improvement. Recently, the model has been extended to include other annual and perennial Brachypodium species opening the door to explorations of polyploid genome evolution and perenniality. We will gather to share and discuss the latest discoveries, tool and resource developments, establish collaborations and identify avenues for future research.
You can visit our 4th IBC 2019 web site at brachypodium2019.org to get updated information on the conference. The registration period will be open from January 2019 on.
We look forward to meeting you at Huesca and enjoying the Central Pre-Pyrenees and Pyrenees, one of the world “hotspots” of Brachypodium diversity.
