Even though Korean ginseng is one of the 13 Panax species, experts working on any species of ginseng are invited. The topics will include cultivation, industry, taxonomy, biological activity, metabolism, clinical study, and more. The second special symposium presents current understanding and discusses about future direction of ginseng research and industry.
