Events

Toward fulfilling its objectives, the Society has carried out the following scientific activities, independently and also in collaboration with others.

The Upcoming Event:

12th Malaysia International Genetics Congress


Genetics is a very important and exciting field which is progressing very rapidly. The discoveries and information generated from research have the potential for providing better quality of life, improving food safety and security, and having an impact on a nation’s economic and development.
This Congress will be its twelfth debut of the Genetics Congress Series organized by Genetics Society of Malaysia, which begun in 1995. Due to the overwhelming success of the previous events, we are pushing this twelfth version into a bigger role in strengthening genetics advances for the future.
This 3-day congress will address the latest advances in various genetic activities and its achievements. More than 30 keynote and invited speakers will be presenting their views and findings in this congress. The congress will provide opportunities and gather as many geneticists, breeders, scientists, researchers, academicians, biotechnologists, industrialists and students to share their latest knowledge, experiences and achievements in genetics related improvement programmes.

Event Highlights

The theme of the Congress is “Soaring Beyond Frontiers of Genetics”, which appropriately reflects the ever increasing knowledge and understanding on the effect of genes in every sphere of life. This brings the pervasive influence of genetics yet to another level.

3rd International Plant Breeding Conference 2016


Plant breeding is an important field of research for improvement of yield and quality of plant production. The achievements of plant breeding have had tremendous on economic and national development. Advance techniques and tools would be able to assist plant breeders in their practice of selection and strategies for plant improvement.
This Conference will be its third debut of Plant Breeding Conference Series organised by the Genetics Society of Malaysia, which begun in 2012. Due to the overwhelming success of the First and the Second Conferences, we are pushing this Third Conference into a bigger role in strengthening plant breeding for the future.
This 2-day conference will address the latest advances in various plant breeding activities and its achievements. More than 20 keynote and invited speakers will be presenting their views and findings in this conference. The conference will provide opportunities and gather as many plant breeders, agricultural scientists, geneticist, researchers, academicians, biotechnologies and student to share their latest knowledge, experience and achievements in plant improvement programmes.
