On behalf of the Organizing Committee we are pleased to welcome the researches, educators, producers and sponsors take place at the VIII International Scientific and Practical Conference «Biotechnology as an Instrument for Plant Biodiversity Conservation (physiological, biochemical, embryological, genetic and legal aspects)» - YaltaBiotech 2018, which is supported by the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), governmental organizations, associations and private sectors in Russia and abroad.
Biotechnology (life technologies) as an independent science emerged in the mid of 70s of XX century. Based on the fundamentally new principles it is designed to solve such global problems as food, energy and resource safety, environmental protection and some others. In many countries biotechnology development is in priority. Since the 80s of the last century an active development of new biotechnological methods started and the end of the 20th - beginning of the 21th century were marked by a rapid development not only biotechnological research, but also high-biotech industries. Most of the countries all over the world have their own programs for biotechnology development until 2020-2050. Plant conservation biotechnology is a modern and interdisciplinary subject, by which the tools of a modern biotechnology are applied for a plant preservation.
According the Global Strategy of Plant Conservation 2011-2020 it is important that biotechnology techniques have to be consolidated with traditional ex situ and in situ conservation methods. Gene-fund collections in FSFIS "NBG-NSC” include a variety of species and cultivars of ornamental, aromatic, subtropical and stone fruit plants (in fact the global gene-pool resource) with both aesthetic and economic value. However, difficulties in conventional propagation, cleaning up, introduction, breeding and preservation of perennial horticultures make scientists to use modern methods of biotechnology and bioengineering.
A wide range of biotechnological methods now include: 1) tissue culture techniques, 2) molecular genome analysis, 3) immunological diagnostics, 4) physiological and biochemistry analysis, 5) cryopreservation protocols for the collection, characterization, 6) long-term storage, 7) in vitro morhogenesis, 8) propagation, 9) patenting, 10) storage, 11) documentation, 12) exchange of plant genetic resources.
You are welcome to Yalta.
With great respect and appreciation,
Dr. Sci. in Biology
Organizing Committee Convener
The program of the conference includes the following topics for discussion:
Investigations of plant biodiversity in vitro, in situ and ex situ.
Clonal micropropagation of plants: theoretical and applied aspects.
Creation of in vitro plant collections, methods for germplasm conservation.
Molecular genetics techniques for plant biodiversity studies.
Biochemical studies of plant germplasm; synthesis and usage of biological active substances.
Physiological aspects of plants development and resistance.
Plant reproductive biology in biodiversity conservation.
Informational-analytical providing for the studies of plant genetic resources.
Normative-legal base and methodological aspects of plant world biodiversity conservation.
