2023/6/16 15:52:00 本站

Wild plant genetic resources for food and agriculture serve as the foundation for human survival, and their protection and sustainable use are crucial. In order to conserve and ensure the sustainable use of all plant genetic resources for food and agriculture, and to fairly and equitably share the benefits arising from their use, the China Biodiversity Conservation and Green Development Foundation and the Beijing Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences jointly organized “The Third Symposium on Conservation and Benefit Sharing of Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture” on May 23, 2023 in Beijing. 

The symposium aimed to serve as a platform for fruitful discussions and valuable insights into the conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture. It highlighted the need for continued efforts to protect and manage these resources effectively and to ensure that their benefits are shared fairly and equitably. The symposium also emphasized the importance of international cooperation and collaboration in achieving these objectives and the role of scientific research in supporting sustainable agriculture and food security in the background of Chinas national strategy for Seeds Industry Revitalization.


Dr. Xin Liu gave a speech on the conference from the following three aspects:


Introduction to Large-Scale Plant and Animal Genome Research:

? Human Genome Project

? Ten Thousand Plant Genomes Project

? Earth Genome Project


Importance of Genetic Resources Exchange for Related Programs


? Samples are the key to completing related plans

? There are certain policy restrictions on the exchange of samples and data

? There are also technical difficulties in the exchange of resources


Looking Ahead to the Future of Genetic Resources Exchange


? A fairer sharing mechanism under the principle of mutual benefit

? Use of new technologies to address issues of genetic resource exchange
