Plant transformation is now a core research tool to fight against hunger, to open up the new avenues of science, to evolve the crop varieties which are multipurpose, producing high harvests under normal and natural stressful conditions to make Earth green and prosperous. The major technical challenge facing plant transformation is the development of methods and constructs to produce a high proportion of plants showing predictable transgene expression without collateral genetic damage. Current key objectives of the plant transformation technologies are understanding and control of transgene intergration, expression and stability in plants, to provide improved transformation systems, address biosafety considerations and to develop GM crops for the benefit of developing countries. International Conference "Plant Transformation Technologies III" will discuss the criteria to verify plant transformation; the biological and practical requirements for transformation systems; the integration of tissue culture, gene transfer, selection, and transgene expression strategies to achieve transformation in recalcitrant pieces; and other constraints to plant transformation. This three-day event will provide leading academy and industry scientists a platform to communicate recent advances in "Plant Transformation Technologies III" and an opportunity to establish multilateral collaborations. The International Conference "Plant Transformation Technologies III" will cover the following research topics: Recent Advances in the Transformation of Plants Agrobacterium Mediated Plant Transformation Non Agrobacterium Plant Transformation Methods: Microinjection, Electroporation and Others Biolistic Particle Bombardment Mediated Gene Transfer into Plants Transformation of Agronomic Important Crops Plant Transformation Vectors Plant Promoters for Transformation Selectable & Screenable Markers for Plant Transformation Genome Stability in Transgenic Plants Methods to Produce Marker-free Transgenic Plants Gene targeting in Plants (ZFNs, TALEN, Homologous Recombination) Transplastomic Plants and Plastid biotechnology Transgenic Plants as BioFactories
