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.

IX European Plant Science Retreat

The European Plant Science Retreat is the only European Congress organized BY and FOR PhD students working in Plant Biology.

It’s the perfect occasion to present your projects and results in front of other PhD students and rewarded scientists. You will have the opportunity to discuss with other PhDs working in the same field as you, sharing science, discussing technical problems and finding solutions together.
