Several IRTG 2843 students, postdocs and PIs from ACGG partner institutions JLU, UQ and HGU took part in the 31st Plant and Animal Genome congress in San Diego in January 2024. Among the lucky winners of two PAG travel grants were Yasmine Lam (UQ), who was awarded the Earl J. Scherago Travel Grant Award, and Sven Weber (JLU), who won a Scherago International Student Travel Grant. Congratulations to Yasmine and Sven!
PAG is the world's largest agricultural genetics conference, taking place in San Diego each January with around 3000 attendees from all over the world and including a huge range of scientific and industry workshops over six days. It is also a great event to meet and discuss breeding science with world-leading experts, colleagues and friends from around the world – like our ACGG Scientific Advisory Board members Jacqui Batley (University of Western Australia) and Wubishet Bekele (Agriculture Canada), who were also attending PAG this year.
