Cotton Genome Initiative (ICGI)

Advances in cotton genomics will be the main theme, e.g., the development, practice and uses of cotton genomics and genomics resources. A committee-chosen speaker line-up In 2014 will include five speakers, each addressing very different aspects of cotton genomics. The speakers hail from diverse institutions and world locations. In 2014, we will also try something new. We will devote one 20-minute time slot to a rapid-fire set of 15 ~1-minute oral introductions of posters about cotton genomics posters. Each 1-minute oral description will be made by the poster presenter, so will also introduce him/her to the audience.
