Global Food Security Symposium 2017

Building on American ingenuity, international expertise, and historic bipartisan support for food security programming, the United States can help lead struggling nations from instability to prosperity and turn frontier markets into thriving partners.

Cochaired by Douglas Bereuter, president emeritus of The Asia Foundation, and Dan Glickman, former secretary of the US Department of Agriculture, this year's symposium will showcase the best of business, social, and policy innovation. Top visionaries from every sector will gather to generate the productive dialogue and actions necessary to ensure strides in global food security and agricultural development, and the Council will release its recommendations in a new report.

CO2 Assimilation in Plants from Genome to Biome
Gordon Research Conference
Adapting Photosynthesis to Insure Against an Uncertain Future

Advancing and applying our understanding of CO2 assimilation in plants and algae has never been more important to society than today. The world faces the dual challenges of producing adequate food for mid-century sustainably while adapting and mitigating CO2-driven climate change. This meeting addresses these challenges from the gene to the globe in discussing emerging advances in our understanding and their application. Topics include: engineering increased photosynthesis for food security and bioenergy, phenomics in accelerating improvement in CO2 assimilation and yield, overcoming oxygenation at Rubisco, the evo-devo of the CO2 assimilation apparatus, inter-compartmental fluxes, kinetic modeling of CO2 assimilation, what is new in carbon concentrating mechanisms, prospects for modifying stomatal responses and mesophyll conductance, adapting to atmospheric change, quantification of global sinks for CO2, and engineering landscapes to offset climate change.

Rooting 2017
8th International Symposium on Root Development

The conference aims to bring together scientists in plant developmental biology, agriculture, horticulture, forestry, ecophysiology and biotechnology, with a common interest in root development. It focuses on the development of adventitious, lateral and primary roots as the outcome of genetic control and the plant's interaction with the environment. Based on the tradition of the earlier symposia held in the US, Israel, The Netherlands, Spain, Canada and Germany, the 8th International Symposium on Root Development aims to exchange recent knowledge and ideas on fundamental and applied aspects of root induction and further development.

34th Annual IPG Symposium on Root Biology

The Interdisciplinary Plant Group (IPG) at the University of Missouri will hold its 34th Annual Symposium on "Root Biology", the fourth in this series, 7-9 June 2017. This symposium will bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers from across the globe to address recent advances in studies of root growth, development, and function as well as root-rhizosphere interactions. The symposium will be held in the Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, Missouri.

PhD Course: Field-omics and Remote Sensing -- Analysis of '-omics' and Phenotypic Data in FIeld Trials and Controlled Environments

The recent flurry of technological advancements by, e.g., Next-Generation sequencing (NGS) and mass spectrometry (MS), have enabled genome-scale capturing of biological processes at the molecular level. Rather than being limited to a handful of measured compounds, it is now possible to capture thousands of molecular variables. These techniques are being increasingly used also in the field conditions which is a central part of crop science.
