Int'l Phytomedomics and Nutriomics Consortium (ICPN)

The International Consortium on Phytomedomics and Nutriomics (ICPN) organized four International Workshops during the International Conference on the Status of Plant and Animal Genome Research in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. In these workshops, the talks delivered by the speakers focused on the concepts, strategies, tools and techniques of genomics for depiction of the genomes of medicinal plants and nutraceutical crops, the genes underlying the production of phytomedicines and nutraceuticals and utilization of these information for enhancement of their contents. We believe, it is high time now for laying down a roadmap for collaborative research to employ genomics and breeding for developing improved varieties with higher content of phytomedicines and nutraceuticals. For this purpose, the title of talks in this workshop accentuate on the precise plan of actions assuming availability of funds for future collaborative research on the ICPN platform. We will have comprehensive deliberations among the present members of ICPN, and scientists and staff from public and private sectors and funding agencies, and also policy makers in a separate informal meeting to be organized during the conference to discuss on drafting of a white paper for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and preparation of a template for formulating grant proposals.
