The African Genetic Biocontrol Consortium is calling for abstract submissions for the 1st Global Congress on New and Emerging Genetic Biocontrol Technologies, which will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from August 28 to September 2, 2023. The congress will bring together experts from around the world to exchange knowledge and share learnings across diverse disciplines related to genetic biocontrol technologies through courses, workshops, presentations, and symposia.

The main theme of the event will be “Emerging genetic biocontrol technologies: progress made in the science, research, testing, and environmental release of experimental genetically modified biocontrol products”. The organization is calling for proposals centered around this theme and will be accepting abstracts until Saturday, April 15.
