Cotton Genome Initiative (ICGI)

Advances in cotton genomics will be the main theme, including the development, practice and uses of cotton genomics and genomics resources. A international committee-chosen speaker line-up will include five topical speakers from diverse institutions and world locations. Each will address different aspects of cotton genomics. One 20-minute time slot will be devoted to a rapid-fire set of 1-minute invited oral descriptions of cotton genomics posters by the respective poster presenter.
