Description

OMICS International is going to organize its 2nd Global Summit on Plant Science as scientific mutual academic collaboration with N.I.Vavilov Institute of Plant Genetic Resources during October 06-08, 2016 in London, UK. We intend our scientists to work alongside taking the advantage of our world-class facilities, to push the boundaries of Plant Science and Agricultural Science.

The N.I. Vavilov Institute of Plant Genetic Resources (VIR) developed from the Bureau of Applied Botany organized in 1894 under the Ministry of Agriculture and State Property of Russia. Since 1967, the Institute has been bearing the name of Acad. N.I. Vavilov, a brilliant scientist who headed this Institute from 1920 to 1940.

VIR is the only research institution in Russia whose activities include plant genetic resources (PGR) collection, conservation and study. This Institute has the world's 4th largest collection of plant seeds; its accomplishments and role in maintaining the global ex situ collections are well known worldwide. Its global PGR collections represent plant diversity encompassing 325,000 accessions of 155 botanical families, 2,532 species of 425 genera. The Institute also maintains a herbarium of 260,000 specimens.

Today VIR is located in two buildings in the historical centre of St. Petersburg and also has 12 experiment stations in different regions of Russia

Assuming such a wide scope of interest, N.I.Vavilov Institute of Plant Genetic Resources created an opportunity for experts in different sciences to exchange information and ideas.

Agri, Food and Aqua Conferences are the basic disciplines of all the subjects. As a matter of fact research within the field of Plant Science has been conducted for many years and has resulted in pioneering various novel techniques and standard protocols. Various conference related to these subjects have been organized in Asia, Europe and USA. Plant Science  in OMICS provide a common platform for all the researches, academicians and industrialists related to the field of plant science to focus on all aspects of infectious diseases and host-pathogen interaction in plants and various other emerging issues related to plant science.
