Generating, capturing and utilising genetic variation

We’re still at Bioenergy Genomics 2017, streaming talks when we can.

We’ll be processing these to go on to YouTube. In the meantime you can see the rushes, as it were, through the tweets and Periscope links.

Inter-Kingdom signalling – a Populus case study.
Jerry Tuskan, Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA

Brachypodium functional genomics: pan-genomics, polyploidy and a cast of mutants.
John Vogel, DoE Joint Genome Institute, USA

Mutagenesis and genomic analysis in Arundo donax.
Silvio Salvi, University of Bologna, Italy

Targeting the gene space using genotyping-by-sequencing with single primer enrichment technology to identify the genetic basis of drought tolerance in bioenergy Populus nigra.
Michele Morgante, IGA Technology Services, Italy

Towards expanding biomass availability for the European bio-economy: developments in breeding, agronomy and utilisation of the Asian C4 perennial grass Miscanthus.
John Clifton-Brown, IBERS Aberystwyth University, UK

De novo transcriptome assembly and comprehensive expression profiling in the bioenergy crop Arundo donax to gain insights into moderate drought stress response.
Antoine Harfouche, University of Tuscia, Italy

The phone shut down for no obvious reason, so I had to set up a new stream. This was the second most embarrassing thing to happen today. The next part is here.

The most embarrassing thing was Antoine Harfouche telling me I’d done a good job. I’ll try to splice the two parts as painlessly as possible for the YouTube version.

Alun is the Producer for Botany One. It's his job to keep the server running. He's not a botanist, but started running into them on a regular basis while working on writing modules for an Interdisciplinary Science course and, later, helping teach mathematics to Biologists. His degrees are in archaeology and ancient history.
