Dear colleagues!


We invite you to take part in

Third International scientific and practical conference

“Genomics and modern biotechnologies in plant propagation, breeding and preservation”,


which will be held from October 3 to 8, 2022, in Yalta (Russia). It is organized within the framework of the National Project "Science" for the creation of the world-class genomic research center “Kurchatov Genome Center”. It is planned to work in thematic areas, organize discussions, "round tables" and schools of young scientists.


Co-organizing institutions

Russian Academy of Sciences

Ministry of Science and Education of the Russian Federation

The Nikita Botanical Gardens - National Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences

National Research Center "Kurchatov Institute"


The conference will present the results of studying genomes and preservation of plant genetic resources based on the latest research in the field of genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, and practical use of the world's gene pool of cultivated plants in breeding, as well as genomic research of wild plant species. It is planned to discuss promising areas of joint work on fundamental and applied aspects of studying plant biological diversity.


The conference program includes the following areas:

  1. Genomic and proteomic studies, information technologies in working with bioresource collections and in plant breeding.
  2. Molecular and genetic aspects of the study of wild plant species as sources of economically valuable traits and secondary metabolites.
  3. Clonal micro-propagation of plants: theoretical and applied aspects.
  4. Creation of plant collections in vitro, cryopreservation, methods of preserving the gene pool.
  5. Gene pool and breeding of fruit, berry, ornamental crops and other plants.

During the conference, it is planned to conduct excursions to the Arboretum of FSFIS "NBG-NSC", “Biotron" complex, as well as field tours to specially protected natural territories and wineries.


The working languages of the conference are Russian and English.


To participate in the conference, you must register by May 20, 2022, by filling out the participant registration form (send it to the Organizing Committee's e-mail).
