The Pioneering Power of Plant Biology -- The Present and Future of Genetic Recombination in Plants

2015-3-28 (Sat) 14:00 - 18:00

Overview of Symposium on Plant Biology and Genetic Recombination in Plants

On Saturday, March 28, 2015, we will be holding a symposium on plant biology. We hope this lecture and experiment will further deepen your understanding on plant genetic engineering and genetic recombination.

Anyone aged junior high school student and up may attend this event. We'd like to extend a special invitation to school teachers to attend and deepen their understanding of plant genetic engineering and genetic recombination.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire knowledge on this subject, so don't miss out!

This lecture is free to attend. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
