8th International Symposium on In Vitro Culture and Horticultural Breeding

The next IVCHB2013 will be held at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Coimbra, Portugal, from 2-7 June 2013. The main aim of the symposium is to bring together specialists and stakeholders interested in different areas of plant tissue culture to exchange ideas and information and to establish new lines of research for the future. Main topics of the symposium will be: plant cloning, plant conservation, somatic embryogenesis, rooting, haploid research, genetic transformation and physiological, biochemical and molecular aspects of in vitro culture. A technical tour and several cultural and social events (dinner and a serenade of Fado included!) will take place. The convener of this symposium (Prof. Jorge Canhoto) and his team have the pleasure to invite all the colleagues working in this field to join this meeting which will be held, for the first time, in Portugal.
