The two-day plant science symposium theme is “Predictive Crop Design: Genome to Phenome,” with speakers from the University of California at Berkeley, Duke University, and private industry—including both startup and multinational companies.

This conference is part of the Nebraska Research & Innovation Conference (NRIC) annual series, conducted by Nebraska EPSCoR and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). In 2016, a five-year NSF project established the Center for Root & Rhizobiome Innovation (CRRI): a collaboration to research crop productivity focused on plants’ root microbiome. CRRI scientists—from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska at Kearney, University of Nebraska Medical Center and Doane University—aim to grow scientific knowledge that will better feed the growing population.

Students and faculty interested in attending the symposium should register before March 23 at (note: deadline for discount hotel room reservations at the group rate is March 15). Attendees may also present a relevant poster in the event’s poster session on the afternoon of April 6 (posters must be registered no later than March 22).
