    7th AGRI-net International Plant Chemical Biology Conference 


    Monday 25th June 2018 from 9:30 to 16:00


    Syngenta Jealott’s Hill International Research Station, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG42 6EX 





    The 7th AGRI-net International Plant Chemical Biology conference aims to stimulate collaborations between the chemical biology and agri-science research communities drawn from academia and industry. This one-day meeting provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and approaches to tackle challenges in sustaining and protecting food and fibre production and will cover a wide spectrum of research, with poster contributions from both the chemical biology and agri-sciences communities.
