XVI National Congress of Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Biology

¡Welcome!

XVI National Congress of Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Biology | Sociedad Mexicana de Bioquímica

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the XVI National Congress of Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Biology on this occasion will be held in Hotel Real de Minas Tradicional, Queretaro, December 7-11, 2015.

Continuing the vision of enriching our scientific meeting we will continue like 20 years ago organizing the 9th Simposium Mexico-USA, with the valuable participation of american colleagues interested to meet and interact with research groups in our country; so one of the objectives of this forum is to promote interaction and strengthen the scientific partnerships both domestic and binational.

It is gratifying to note how over the years, this biennial conference has been strengthened as the scientific community devoted to the study of plant biology in our country has grown and matured. During this congress topics like plant signaling, plant microbe interaction, agro-bioechnology, genomics/omics, crop improvment, plant hormone and secondary metabolism, plant nutrition, in vivo plant imaging, development and epigenetics will be emphasis.

We hope to have a strong participation of the attendees recurring and new research groups in these areas. Additionally, in order to enrich this forum, we extend a warm invitation to researchers in related areas such as botany, histology, phytochemistry, plant breeding, agricultural and forestry to improve multidisciplinary interaction, national and international.

This conference will include plenary sessions, where academic leaders will talk about the state of the arte in selected scientific topics. Also concurrent sessions in which young scientists will be presenting their research work. For the high educational value of this Congress, we will have poster sessions where we expect a strong interaction between students and the scientific leaders in order to favor new scientific colaborations.

Evaluation committees selected for their scientific contribution and creativity, three posters per area which will receive honorific distinction.

We look forward to welcoming you in Queretaro, is a mexican state which has four World Heritage Sites declared by UNESCO: the historic downtown of Santiago de Querétaro, the five Franciscan Missions Sierra Gorda, places of memory and living traditions of the Otomí- Chichimeca and Tolimán culture are added to the list as Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

¡See you in Queretaro 2015!

Sincerely,

The organizing committee
