Annual WCGALP Conference
World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production
Multiple Speakers
July 3-8, 2022

The World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production (WCGALP), to be held in July 2022 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands includes a technical session entitled Molecular genetics: gene editing focused on sharing methods and results with peers working on genome editing in livestock and other animals.

There is also a session on gene editing entitled, Gene editing: ethics, economics, experiences that is focused more on the challenges and the contribution of gene editing to animal breeding, rather than the technical details of the research and applied methodology.

WCGALP has a number of scholarships available for PhD-students who have limited finance available for participation in the conference. These scholarships will cover the registration fee and an additional €500 will be made available in case of physical (and not on-line) participation. The fee may include an excursion and the Wednesday party to stimulate networking.

To be eligible for a scholarship a paper should be submitted through the link for submitting abstracts on the WCGALP website before the deadline of 12 January 2022. Also a mail should be sent to wcgalp@wur.nl with a motivation why opting for the scholarship, the abstract number, and stating whether participation will be physical or on-line. The mail should be accompanied by a letter of the supervisor stating the projected graduation date (should be after 12 January 2022) and confirming supervisorship.

In order to bring WCGALP 2022 to an even wider audience, the conference is going hybrid in 2022! This means that both parallel and plenary sessions will be streaming live from Rotterdam. Poster sessions will also be digital and details on its exact format are in development! Early bird registration rates apply through March 1, 2022. https://wcgalp.com/registration

We are reaching out to invite you to nominate yourself and/or your colleagues to deliver a research presentation or poster as part of a special session at ISMB 2022.

We are organizing a one-day special session on digital agriculture for the 30th conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB 2022), July 10-14, 2022 in Madison, Wisconsin. ISMB is the annual conference of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). ISMB 2022 is a hybrid conference and ISMB conferences are typically attended by thousands of participants.

The digital agriculture special session is a one-day event during the conference on July 12th from 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM, CDT. Our aim with this session is to cover the breadth of foundational and applied research from molecular to ecological at the intersection of computational biology and agricultural sciences.

For more information and access to the nomination form please visit https://www.digiag.org. The deadline for nominations is May 20th, 2022.

Invited nominees will have their registration fee covered. We are currently in the process of seeking sponsorship with the aim of offsetting other travel costs.
