Welcome to APBGE-2021

We would like to welcome all delegates and participants to the 42nd Annual Meeting of Plant Tissue Culture Association (India) [PTCA(I)] & International Symposium on Advances in Plant Biotechnology and Genome Editing-2021 (APBGE-2021). The event is being organized by ICAR-Indian Institute of Agricultural Biotechnology, Ranchi-834 010, India, in association with PTCA(I). Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event will be a live, virtual event

The Plant Tissue Culture Association (India) [PTCA (I)] is an elite body of Plant Tissue Culture Scientists, several of whom are pioneers in this field, while others have established scientific credentials. One of the goals of PTCA(I) is to provide platform for students, researchers and scientists to present their work for interaction and exchange views on the most recent developments in plant science. PTCA (I) has been providing this unique platform by facilitating annual congregation of scientists, year after year, for more than past four decades. The annual meeting of the association is combined with a three-day symposium on a theme related to advances in plant tissue culture and plant biotechnology.

During this Symposium, eminent experts from around the world from the plant biotechnology, plant tissue culture, plant genomics, and plant genetic engineering and genome editing fields will discuss the recent advances in plant biotechnology and future prospects for plant improvement. This event will provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on the latest innovative approaches in the field of Plant biotechnology and Genome Editing in a variety of experimental plant systems ranging from agronomic, horticultural, medicinal and tree crops to model plants.

We look forward for your participation in APBGE-2021.
