WORKSHOP FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATORS

 
Conveners:  Margaret Young, Elizabeth City State University, and Ronald Blackmon, Elizabeth City State University

 

10:00 am 3:30 pm Education Workshop Room 304

 

This workshop is geared towards high school and undergraduate educators however, middle school teachers are welcome to attend.  In addition, graduate professionals, especially those interested in a career in academia will be able to extract useful information from this workshop.  It is critical that the latest innovations and resources in science and in vitro biology are available to educators.  It is also important that science professionals interact with and are able to translate complex discoveries into simple key concepts.  This workshop will introduce the latest technologies that are available for in vitro plant and animal science which will fit within the educational core curriculum.  We intend to have hands on science demonstrations as well as the availability of science kits.

WORKSHOP ON ADVANCES IN COTTON BIOTECHNOLOGY

 

Convener: Sergei Krasnyanski, North Carolina State University

 

3:00 pm 7:00 pm Plant Symposium Off Property at Cotton Inc.

For advance ticket holders only

 

One of the most important goals that all agriculture-related industries are constantly trying to achieve is sustainability. Today the cotton industry is developing and putting in use new technologies, methods and new applications for the cotton plant to meet current needs for production and profit. Continued creation and utilization of advanced knowledge in agricultural sciences and plant cell molecular biology and biotechnology are imperative for further improvement of the cotton plant and its productivity. Constant affords in genetic improvement of cotton are targeting enhanced yield, improved fiber quality, resistance to insects and diseases and increased tolerance of cotton to abiotic stress. Some advances and limitations of such efforts will be covered in relevant presentations followed by round table discussion. This event is an off-property workshop and runs from 3:00 - 7:00 pm. There is no fee to attend this workshop; however, attendance is limited and you must pre-register if you wish to attend
