Workshop 1
Title: Flow Cytometry & Banana Genome Size Determination Workshop (Part I)
Date: 3rd September 2021 (Friday)
Time: 9.00 am – 12.00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Nallammai Singaram, Taylor’s University

 

Universiti Malaya and Taylor's University are proud to organise Flow Cytometry & Genome Size Determination Workshop in conjunction with the Malaysia National Banana Congress (MNBC) 2021. This workshop aims to provide an introduction to the Flow Cytometry (FCM) technique as a tool to evaluate new plant specimens and to determine the ploidy level of a plant cell. This information is especially crucial to produce rapid and accurate plant analysis results especially in the field of population genetics.

 

Who should attend?: Students, researchers, or anyone who is interested to learn about the techniques used in flow cytometry.

Fee: Free for all MNBC 2021 participants

Webinar

Title: Banana Tissue Culture
Date: 2nd September 2021 (Thursday)
Time: 10.00 am – 11.00 am
Speaker: Dr. Mahanom Jalil, Coordinator, Plant Biotechnology Incubator Unit (PBIU), UM

 

Do you know that plant tissue culture is the best way to propagate plantlets in large numbers and can be used to produce pathogen-free plants? Understand the basic principle of plant tissue culture and learn about banana tissue culture techniques in this webinar.

Webinar participants will be able to learn how tissue culture plantlets could offer uniformity in plant growth and fruit production thus making the harvesting and marketing of banana fruit more predictable.

 

Who should attend?: Students, researchers, or anyone who is interested to learn about banana tissue culture.

Fee: Free
