Welcome to the website of the Hellenic Scientific Society for Genetics and Plant Breeding (H.S.S.G.P.B.). The H.S.S.G.P.B. is a non profit scientific society that was launched in 1982, in order to promote scientific knowledge and technology, as well as cooperation among its members on all the scientific fields related to Genetics and Breeding of plant species, as well as the sustainable management and conservation of plant genetic resources. Academic staff of Greek Universities, researchers of the National Agricultural Research Foundation, as well as postgraduate students primarily constitute the members of the society.
To achieve these goals the H.S.S.G.P.B. organizes scientific conferences (every two years), symposia, meetings to discuss general or specific problems related to genetis, breeding, conservation and sustainable management of plant genetic resources. The Society also participates in national and international organizations, forums and work groups related to topics of genetics, breeding, conservation and management of plant genetic resources.
This website, along with various events of the H.S.S.G.P.B. (e.g. Conferences, Symposia), will facilitate new scientific knowledge dissemination and promote cooperation at the national and international level.
