It has recently been agreed that Huazhong Agricultural University and University of Arizona establish a joint laboratory (called Virtual Center) on crop functional genomics to strengthen the relationship of collaborative research and personnel exchanges. Both universities have traditional strengths in research programs and training curricula in genetics, genomics and crop improvement. The UA has developed strong programs in the area of genomics, epigenetics, proteomics of crop plants and HZAU in genetics, molecular biology and biotechnology with applications to crop improvement.

A bilateral symposium will be held during May 15-20, 2007 in Wuhan on the campus of Huazhong Agricultural University, to exchange information on research and development in functional genomics, epigenetics, abiotic stress, reproductive development and evolution, disease resistance of crop plants, and to discuss issues regarding further collaborative research activities and personnel exchanges of faculties and students between the two universities. About 18 scientists from each side will attend the meeting.
