|"Plant Protection and Molecular Design Breeding Technology Innovation Forum" was successfully held|
April 16-17, 2021, jointly organized by the State Key Laboratory of Plant Cell and Chromosome Engineering, the State Key Laboratory of Plant Diseases and Insect Pest Biology, and the Fujian-Taiwan State Key Laboratory of Ecological Control of Crop Pests, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University Plant Immunity The "Plant Protection and Molecular Design Breeding Technology Innovation Forum" hosted by the Research Center was successfully held in Fuzhou.
China Ke Xueyuan , director of the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology Yang Wei was a researcher, plant cells and researcher Fu Xiangdong, director of the State Key Laboratory of Chromosome Engineering, China Agricultural Research Institute of Plant Protection, assistant director, deputy director of the State Key Laboratory of Plant Disease and Insect Pests Lau Man Tak researcher, More than 40 leading experts including Professor You Minsheng, Director of the State Key Laboratory of Ecological Prevention and Control of Crop Pests in Fujian and Taiwan, Professor Wang Zonghua, President of Minjiang University, and Professor Tang Dingzhong, Director of Fujian Agriculture and Forestry Plant Immunity Research Center, attended the forum.
At the same time, the forum was broadcast live to the teachers and students of Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University.
Professor Zheng Baodong, vice president of Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech.
First, Zheng Baodong a warm welcome to the participants of the leading experts here, and Zhong Research Institute of Genetics and Developmental and China Agricultural Research Institute of Plant Protection, has long expressed his heartfelt thanks to the Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, care and support.
Then he introduced the construction of Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and the State Key Laboratory of Ecological Prevention and Control of Crop Pests in Fujian and Taiwan.
He said that he must seize the major strategic opportunities of the country’s vigorous development of science and technology, fully implement the national science and technology development policy, and face the frontiers of international science and technology and our country.
Modernize construction, carry out innovative research, cultivate innovative talents, and strive to build the State Key Laboratory of Ecological Prevention and Control of Crop Pests in Fujian and Taiwan into a key laboratory that represents the national academic, experimental and management level.
The development of the laboratory is inseparable from the support of the experts present.
It is hoped that this opportunity of exchanges between the three national key laboratories can strengthen the relationship between the laboratories and enhance the friendship between the laboratories.
With the strong support of brother laboratories , And strive for a new level of work in the future.
In the academic exchange session of the forum, the three laboratories focused on plant protection and molecular design and breeding related directions, and made "Sustainable Green Agricultural Revolution", "Chilo suppressalis and brown planthopper work together against rice pest defense and mechanisms", "Rice antivirus and virus resistance" Ten reports including "Disease" and "Adaptive Evolution of the Important Agricultural Pest, Plutella xylostella", and conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions.
After the academic report, Yang Weicai and You Minsheng gave their concluding speeches respectively.
Yang Weicai said that he was very happy to participate in the joint exchange meeting of the three key laboratories.
The meeting provided a good communication platform and opportunity for the three of us.
From the regulation of plant nitrogen nutrition, to gene editing to create new genetic resources, to disease-resistant genomes, the content is wonderful and rich, and we learn a lot.
The national key laboratory is a strategic scientific and technological force in our country’s basic research.
We hope that through these exchanges, laboratories can enhance mutual understanding, strengthen academic cooperation, jointly apply for projects, undertake national tasks, and promote the development of each laboratory.
Finally, I thank Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University for organizing this meeting.
You Minsheng also expressed his wish to further deepen the exchanges and cooperation between state key laboratories and scientific research institutions in the future, and once again expressed his gratitude to the experts and teachers who participated in the conference.
The successful holding of this academic forum has laid a good foundation for further strengthening the normal exchanges and cooperation of various national key laboratories and scientific research institutions, and has contributed to the healthy development of my country's plant protection and molecular design breeding.
