The 7th International Triticeae Symposium (7ITS) will be held during Jun 9-13, 2013 at the Sichuan Agricultural University (SAU), Chengdu, China.
 
Triticeae is the economically most important tribe in the grass family (Poaceae). It contains the major cereal crops and forage grasses such as wheat, barley and rye. It also includes important fodder grasses in genera such as Agropyron, Elymus, Leymus, and Psathyrostachys. Because of their economic importance, plants in Triticeae are commonly used for applied and theoretical researches compared with other tribes in Poaceae.
 
The International Triticeae Symposium is an interdisciplinary conference attended by taxonomists, phylogeneticists, geneticists, molecular biologists, plant breeders, agronomists, and so forth, and has been held for six times in Sweden (1991), U.S.A (1994). Syria (1997), Spain (2001), Czech Republic (2005), Japan (2009). Its primary goal is to bring together outstanding scientists working with Triticeae to exchange information on progresses and discuss future research directions with our common interests – to understand and effectively utilize Triticeae for the benefit of human.
 
This symposium includes four main themes:
Systematics and Phylogeny
Biodiversity and Conservation
Genetics and Genomics
Breeding and Utilization
 
The Local Organizing Committee invites you to enjoy this meeting and welcomes any suggestions on the Scientific and Social Programs.
 
We look forward to welcoming you all in Chengdu, China.
