Tracks & Key Topics

Plant Genomics 2018



Track 1:  Plant Genomics and Biotechnology:

Plant Genomics 2018

The development and use biotechnology and genomic tools in economically important plant species such as forest and fruit species, cereals, legumes and medicinal plants. Major efforts are directed to explore genomic tools, such as sequencing, transcriptomics, proteomics, and molecular markers, to identify regulators, genes and strategies responsible for resistance to pests and diseases and for tolerance to water deficit, salinity and temperature stress. Grounded by physiology, biochemistry and biotechnology tools, we identify new plant products, improve biomass production, and also support breeding programs. The study of bioactive compounds and potential health beneficial effects of food metabolites is also performed.

Track 2: Plant Genome Engineering: Strategies and Developments


Modern approach in genome engineering (GE) has made it possible to accurately alter DNA sequences in plant cells, providing specifically engineered plants with traits of interest. Gene targeting efficiency turns on the delivery-method of both sequence-specific nucleases and repair templates, to plant cells.

Plant Genomics 2018


Functional Genomics has been established to study the structure and function of nuclear genome in higher plants.

Track 4: Plant Genetics and Epigenetics

Plant Genomics 2018

Plants developed gradually experienced genetic and epigenetic controlling systems to respond rapidly to unfavourable environmental conditions such as heat, cold, drought, and pathogen infections. In particular, heat greatly affects plant growth and development, immunity and circadian rhythm, and poses a serious threat to the global food supply. Transgenes appear to be particularly sensitive to epigenetic variation which can lead to transgene silencing, i.e. the complete or partial inactivation of transgene expression. Plants are ideal model systems to study the influence of changing environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns. We are especially interested to understand how certain genomic regions become targets for epigenetic modification and how environmental stress affects epigenetic gene regulation. Our applied work investigates how transgene silencing can be prevented and how epigenetic variation can be exploited for novel breeding strategies


Track 5: Bioinformatics and Data Analysis

The plant co-expression is a new internet-based database for plant gene analysis ... A typical co-expressed gene can generate many lists of co-expression data that contain hundreds of genes of interest for enrichment analysis. Also, co-expressed genes can be identified and cataloged in terms of comparative genomics by using the ‘Co-expression gene compare’ feature. This analysis will help interpret experimental data and determine whether there is a common term to those genes.

Track 6: Plant Science

Plant Science is focused on the genetic and cellular control of plant growth and development in model species, crops and their wild relatives using genomics, proteomics, systems biology and advanced light microscopy. Plant Science specialisation is designed to give students an understanding of how plants function, scaling from the molecule to the ecosystem and how this function underpins the performance of plants in natural and agricultural ecosystems. Plant Science is a major focus of scientific research activity at ANU, spanning everything from the function, energy, interactions, genetics and modeling of plants and their environments. In this specialisation students are exposed to cutting edge disciplinary research and researchers, which builds engagement, understanding and analysis of current issues in plant biology. The specialisation will assist students seeking to pursue professional and graduate degrees in plant sciences, and will provide a solid background for students pursuing career goals in plant laboratory science, and public and environmental policy.

Track 7: Plant Breeding

 Plant breeding is the science of maximizing positive genetic traits in plants that people grow. It consists of analytical frameworks that allow researchers to create and select plants that are consistently outstanding in desired traits. The central objective in plant breeding is to improve the genetic basis of commercial crop species to comply with changing demands on yield and quality. Statistics plays a key role in modern plant breeding. A classical quantitative genetic model writes the phenotype as an outcome of genetic, environmental and genotype by environment interaction effects. In the genomic era, this classical model has been extended and generalized. Linear mixed models played an important role in classical quantitative genetics and still do so in modern. 

Track 8: Plant Proteomics

Plant Proteomics is concerned with the entire complement of proteins of plants including the modifications made to a particular set of proteins. Proteomics is an in depth study of a specific proteome, including information on protein and its modifications and variations. Proteomics works with the interacting partners and members associated with it in a sequential network. Plant Proteomics highlights the rapid progress in this field in plants, with emphasis on recent work in model plant species, subcellular organelles, and specific aspects of the plant life cycle such as signalling, reproduction and stress physiology.

Track 9: Genetically Modified Organisms-

A Genetically Modified Organism is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified using recombinant DNA methods (also called gene splicing), gene modification or transgenic technology. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. GMO is any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques (i.e., a genetically engineered organism). GMOs are used to produce many medications and genetically modified foods and are widely used in scientific research and the production of other goods.

Track 10: Plant Pathology

The science that deals with the study of diseases of plants, their development and control is called Plant Pathology. Plant Pathology is defined as the study of the organisms and environmental conditions that cause disease in plants, the mechanisms by which this occurs, the interactions between these causal agents and the plant (effects on plant growth, yield and quality), and the methods of managing or controlling plant disease. Plant diseases are caused by biotic agents like fungi, bacteria, actinomycets, Mycoplasma, viruses, nematodes, and flowering parasites or by abiotic like unfavourable environmental conditions or nutritional deficiencies. Study of plant pathology includes the study of sciences viz, Microbiology, Bacteriology, Virology, Mycology, Nematology, protozoology, phycology, unfavourable, environmental factors, nutritional deficiencies and flowering plant parasites.

Track 11: Genome Sequencing

Genome Sequencing is the process of determining the complete DNA sequence of an organism's genome at a single time. This entails sequencing all of an organism's chromosomal DNA as well as DNA contained in the mitochondria and, for plants, in the chloroplast. It is basically figuring out the order of DNA nucleotides, or bases, in a genome—the order of As, Cs, Gs, and Ts that make up an organism's DNA. Plant Genomics researchers have readily embraced new algorithms, technologies and approaches to generate genome, transcriptome and epigenome datasets for model and crop species that have permitted deep inferences into plant biology. When a species’ reference genome is available, whole-genome resequencing is an efficient approach for discovering genes, SNPs, and structural variants, while simultaneously determining genotypes. Information from these studies will fill in the gaps that exist in the genetic maps of many plant species, improving plant breeding and selection, and enabling definitive comparative genomic analyses within and across species and few associations includes

• Drug Development and design

• SNPs

Track 12: Molecular Breeding

Molecular breeding is the application of molecular biology tools, often in plant breeding and animal breeding. Molecular breeding may be defined in a broad-sense as the use of genetic manipulation performed at DNA molecular levels to improve characters of interest in plants and animals, including genetic engineering or gene manipulation, molecular marker-assisted selection, genomic selection, etc. This term is used to describe several modern breeding strategies, including marker-assisted selection (MAS), marker-assisted backcrossing (MABC), marker-assisted recurrent selection (MARS), and genome-wide selection (GWS) or genomic selection (GS). Plant mutagenesis is rapidly coming of age in the aftermath of recent developments in high-resolution molecular and biochemical techniques. By combining the high variation of mutagenized populations with novel screening methods, traits that are almost impossible to identify by conventional breeding are now being developed and characterised at the molecular level.

Track 13: Plant Synthetic Biology and Plant Transcriptome

Plant synthetic biology is an emerging field that combines engineering principles with plant biology toward the design and production of new devices. This emerging field should play an important role in future agriculture for traditional crop improvement, but also in enabling novel bio production in plants. Annotation is the process of identifying and describing the regions of biological interest within a genome. The location and structure of protein-coding genes is the most common form of annotation, but other types of important sequence annotation include the identification of noncoding RNAs (tRNAs, rRNAs, snoRNAs, miRNAs, siRNAs), repetitive sequences such as transposable elements, and the location of genetic markers. Functional annotation describes the biological context of gene sequences. Almost all genome annotation is performed using semi-automated computational pipelines and is subject to some degree of interpretation and error. Therefore, researchers must understand the methods used to create annotation in order to assess the quality of that annotation.

Track 14: Plant Nanotechnology

The agronomic application of nanotechnology in plants (phyto-nanotechnology) has the potential to alter conventional plant production systems, allowing for the controlled release of agrochemicals (e.g., fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides) and target-specific delivery of biomolecules (e.g., nucleotides, proteins, and activators). An improved understanding of the interactions between nanoparticles (NPs) and plant responses, including their uptake, localization, and activity, could revolutionize crop production through increased disease resistance, nutrient utilization, and crop yield. Nano agriculture involves the employment of Nano particles in agriculture these particles will impart some beneficial effects to crops.

The emergence of nanotechnology and the development of new Nano devices and Nanomaterial are open up potential novel applications in agriculture and biotechnology. Nanoparticles are materials that are small enough to fall within the Nano metric range, with at least one of their dimensions being less than a few hundred nanometres. These materials would release pesticides or fertilizers at a specific time and targeted location. Nanoparticles tagged to agrochemicals or other substances could reduce the damage to other plant tissues and the amount of chemicals released into the environment.

Market Analysis

Introduction to Plant Genomics

The term genomics has a rapidly evolving definition. Genomics is a science i.e. defined by technology. It is the study of genes, their expression and their activities, the role played in biology. Plant genomics is a mounting and constantly evolving field of study, which has gained rapid development of advanced research and data management tools in the past years. It is the part of molecular biology that works on the basis of structure, function, evolution, and mapping of genomes in plants.  Plant genomics is basically a discipline which is further divided into sub-disciplines like bioinformatics, metabolomics, proteomics, and systems biology. Plant Genomics has roots in agriculture as well as it has scope in agriculture fields, medicine, food production and textiles. It is the main source of food for human being.

Role of Genomics in Agriculture-

Agricultural genomics is the application of genomics in agriculture to improve the production of crops and livestock. In the past decade the knowledge of genome composition and gene function has increased tremendously. The whole genome analysis and the complete sequencing of organism genomes show how all genes work together. Genome sequencing will give further insights into evolutionary processes and how modern crops and livestock arose from their ancestors. Genomics has various practical applications in crop improvements. The genome mapping is useful in the following ways 1. Genome size 2. Gene number 3.Gene mapping 4.Gene sequencing 5. Evolution of crop plants 6.Gene cloning 7.Identification of DNA markers 8. Marker assisted selection 9.Transgenic breeding 10. Construction of linkage maps Role of genomics in crop improvement

Value of Agricultural Plant Genomics-

Genomics will accelerate the application of gene technology to agriculture. Plant Genomics will enhance food security, by increasing productivity, and food safety, by eliminating mycotoxins. There is a third benefit, derived from the first two: increased wealth. By accelerating the application of technology in the field of genomics significantly increases the value of seeds and agricultural products. This leads the rise of the wealth of customer, company owners, employees, and citizens of the nations in which genetic supply companies operate, and to both producing and importing nations whose food costs consequently are decreased. The agriculture genomics helps to-

  • Develop crops with better protection to factors that influence their development such as disease, pests, drought, etc.
  • Develop more nutrient-rich foods.
  • Develop less toxic substances contain foods in the genomics research both major and minor genes can be easily mapped.


Why Rome?

 The ‘Eternal City’ is the nickname for the city of Rome. It is sometimes known to be as ‘Caput Mundi’, is a Latin phrase which means "Rome capital of the world". Rome is the capital and largest city of Italy and of the Lazio region. Provisional data suggest a density of 2,877,215 people in 1,285 km2 (496.1 sq. mi), it is also the country's most populated community. It is the fourth-most crowded city in the European Union by population within city limits. Rome is situated on the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, within Lazio region, along the shores of the Tiber. The Vatican City is an independent country inside the city boundaries of Rome, the only existing example of a country within a city: for this reason Rome has been often defined as capital of two states. Rome has the status of a global city. It ranked 13th-most-visited city in the world as well as 3rd most visited in the European Union, and the most popular tourist attraction in Italy.  Its historic centre is recorded by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are the most popularly visited tourist destinations of the world with both locations receiving millions of tourists a year. Rome hosted the 1960 Summer Olympics and is the seat of United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The city hosts the headquarters of many international business companies and national and international banks. Its business district, called EUR, is the base of many companies like the oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry and financial services. Latin is the main spoken language of classical Rome, but as the city had immigrants, and residents from many parts of the world it was also multilingual.

Plant Science in Rome-

The Plant and agriculture in Rome is highly competitive, diversified and specialised and its exports are very successful internationally. Rome is a major exporter of the rice in the world market. Agriculture was expanded during the 1960s and 1970s as it had access to new land and unemployed labour. Between 1962 and 1983, the agricultural sector grew by 4.1% a year on average and in 1980 it employed over 70% of the working population. Yet, the state perceived developments in the agricultural sector as necessary for industrialisation and exports were taxed in order to keep domestic prices low and raise revenue for state investment in other areas of the economy.
