This summer, professor Stefan Jansson of Umeå University, and also President of SPPS, has grown gene-edited cabbage plants in his garden. Together with the journalist Gustaf Klarin from public service broadcaster Sveriges Radio he has harvested and prepared a lunch from the plants that were modified using the “genetic scissors” CRISPR-Cas9. This news motivated even the prestigious journal Science to write a news message about it.
The Society for Experimental Biology’s Annual Meeting 2017 will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden from 3 – 6 July 2017. During the meeting a two-day symposium entitled “Photosynthetic response to a changing environment – Towards sustainable energy production” will be held.
The 8th International Symposium on Root Development will take place in Umeå from May 29th to June 1st 2017. Registration will open in autumn 2016. Put the dates in your diary and get ready for an impressive symposium next year!
The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) is a yearly conference rotating between North America, Australasia and Europe, centered on all aspects of modern plant biology using thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana) as a model system. The 2018 conference will take place in Turku, June 25-29, 2018.
The longawaited new Biotron facility at SLU Alnarp will be inaugurated on November 7, 2016. PlantLink will highlight this with a scientific symposium on Tuesday 8 November at SLU Alnarp (the day after the official inauguration) with speakers from Lund, Alnarp and beyond! Confirmed speakers: Karl-Johan Bergstrand, Anders Lindroth (SITES/LU), Linda-Maria Mårtensson (SITES/SLU) and Heliospectra.
The 5th annual PlantLink Day will be held in the Blue Hall, Ecology building, Lund, in the afternoon of Thursday 6th of October.
From the 15th until the 17th of June 118 attendees from 18 countries participated in the NorPlantBio conference in Realfagbygget on the Gløshaugen campus of NTNU in Trondheim, making it probably one of the largest and most international plant biology conference ever taking place in Norway.
