2017 Eduard Strasburger Workshop
Two Genomes in One Cell: Communication and Conflict

Polyploidization is one of the vital events in the life history of land plants. In this workshop, we focus on the origin of polyploidization and how genetic information from diverse genomic backgrounds is integrated, regulated and maintained in progenies. 

The Strasburger Workshop 2017 will gather breeders as well as evolutionary biologists, ecologists, and developmental biologists and will encompass in-depth seminars and discussions to strengthen further understanding of genome plasticity.  This workshop especially offers young scientists an opportunity to exchange their experiences and techniques as well as gather knowledge while exploring the principles underlying the union of two genomes in one cell.

COST WG1 / EPPN2020 Workshop:  Current and Future Applications of Phenotyping for Plant Breeding

Current and future applications of phenotyping for plant breeding

Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments which determines their structure and function and thus essential performance parameters such as yield, productivity or efficient use of resources. To understand these fundamental processes we need to quantitatively assess the phenotype and generate a link to the genotype in order to understand the genetic basis.

Plant Phenotyping Workshop: Integrating the European Plant Phenotyping Community

The workshop is supported by EMPHASIS, EPPN2020, and ECOLCHANGE

Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments. The need to characterize the phenotype is essential to understand fundamental processes which determine the structure and function of plants in particular in times of climate change. While significant progress has been made in molecular methods in recent years and the genomes of several plants have been sequenced this knowledge is not sufficient to simulate the phenotype of a plant without knowing the history and the dynamic interaction of the plant with its environment. Thus, plant phenotyping - quantitative analysis of structure and function of plants - has become the major bottleneck and, quantitative information on genotype-environment relations is the key to address future challenges.

ICAR 2018: The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research

The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research is a yearly conference rotating between North America, Australasia and Europe.  The ICAR2016 was held in South Korea and is followed by ICAR2017 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The conference is centered on all aspects of modern plant biology using thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana) as a model system. The conference regularly brings together over 800 scientists from all corners of the world for five days to discuss all aspects of molecular plant science from research on plant growth and development to improving plant tolerance to adverse environmental conditions.

ICAR has so far has not been organized in northern Europe. Thus, bringing ICAR2018 to Turku in Finland will be a premiere for the Nordic Countries. Finland traditionally has strong molecular plant biology with teams in Helsinki concentrating on plant development and plant responses to the environment, Oulu focusing on population studies, while Turku is leading in research on photosynthesis. The organization team for ICAR2018 consists of scientists from University of Helsinki and Turku as well as Oulu.
