Consortium for Improving Plant Yield: CIPY

Enhanced, stable crop production is essential to meet the demands of three billion extra consumers in the near future. The Consortium for Improving Plant Yield (CIPY) aims to exploit the inherent potential of the model plant species Arabidopsis and to unlock its genetic capacity to grow and produce biomass. This advanced knowledge will then be exploited to design novel strategies to enhance the growth and production potential of world crops.

CIPY is a public private partnership established within the Netherlands Genomics Initiative.




CIPY Workshop & Symposium on NGS data analysis and multi-omics integration

Plant Research International (Wageningen UR) and the Consortium for Improving Plant Yield (CIPY) are organising a two-day event on 12 and 13 December 2013 to update you on new applications and opportunities of combining multiple omics techniques in life sciences and recent advances in Next Generation Sequencing.

Dates & Venue
December 12th, 2013: Symposium on new-developed methods and applications of combined high throughput methods in life sciences (multi-omics analysis)
December 13th, 2013: ‘hands-on’ workshop on applications of new data, tools and analysis strategies in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis.
