Researchers in agricultural biology (AgBio) face incredible challenges. Not only is global food insecurity a growing concern, but the tremendous complexity of plant genomes and the large number of animals in breeding programs makes the research particularly arduous.

On this GEN Live, we’ll discuss how science, with a particular focus on genomics and data science, is playing a role in improving processes used in agriculture, breeding, and managing and improving populations.


A live Q&A session followed the presentations, offering a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists.
