Vienna, 22.5. - 25.5.2018

Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) Conference 2018

The focus rests on the wealth of diversity that is currently stored in biodiversity biobanks worldwide.

Sessions will cover agricultural, forest, animal and environmental biodiversity and their characterization by state-of-the-art genomic, phenomic and molecular tools. This characterization process is a substantial part of any long-term strategy to ensure the preservation of biodiversity and thereby to secure the foundation for subsistence of mankind.

Additionally diverse social events like guided tours through Zoo Schönbrunn, the oldest zoo in the world, or through Vienna’s Museum of Natural History, or the city center will be offered. The conference dinner will be held at Town Hall.
