A virtual gathering of the world's scientists working in wheat and rust research, delivering innovations to farmers across the world.
The Borlaug Global Rust Initiative’s (BGRI) virtual technical workshop will bring together scientists at the forefront of wheat science for cutting-edge training and knowledge sharing. Experts from global institutions such as Cornell University, CIMMYT, ICARDA, and the John Innes Centre, with presenters from Ethiopia, Kenya, India, Australia, Finland, Mexico, the United Kingdom and United States, will lead in-depth talks and discussions on the most pressing challenges facing global wheat security.
The three-day workshop will be broken up into sessions with keynotes from leading experts and presentations focused on key areas of wheat research:
- Breeding technologies
- Disease surveillance
- Molecular host-pathogen interaction
- Disease resistance
- Gene stewardship
