Call For Papers

Plants, are the most fascinating and significant group of organisms existing on the planet Earth. Plant Science applies the fundamentals of agriculture, biology, and chemistry to plant life. Besides their unique relevance to our lives, plants themselves are unique in their biology. Although not armed with a sophisticated ‘immune system’ like humans, they are apparently able to fight infections for thousands of years and defy cancer. All in all, plants are most valuable basic research objects since we can learn fundamental principles that are shared with humans, and at the same time learn how different wiring can create such fundamental differences in appearance, biochemistry, and function. Plants are among the planet’s most sophisticated chemists, starting with their conversion of sunlight into chemical energy as the basis of primary productivity in the biosphere and extending to the incredibly diverse and complex array of secondary compounds they synthesize. Over the years, plant biology has matured and is homing in on many of the classic great questions pertaining to mechanisms of development, the interplay of hormones, mechanisms of cell wall construction and growth, the structure of signalling and metabolic networks, and mechanisms of environmental perception and adaptation. It is obvious that technologies open up new horizons and speed up discovery by orders of magnitude. The study of plants is vital because they build almost all animal life on Earth by generating a large proportion of the oxygen and food that provide humans and other organism’s energy they need to exist. Plants are crucial to the future of human society as they provide food, oxygen, medicine, and products for people, as well as creating and preserving soil. Plant stewardship can help address the global environmental issues of resource management, conservation, human food security, biologically invasive organisms, carbon sequestration, climate change, and sustainability.

This international conference aims to identify how new technologies and modern approaches which can and will transform plant science in the future to achieve the grand challenges of new biology. The conference covers newer tools, genomic technologies and commercial applications affecting all fields of plant science from basic to applied research. Researchers are invited to submit abstract for oral/poster presentation and topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
o Agriculture, Forestry and Horticulture
o Plant Ecology, Evolution and Development
o Plant Nutrition, Plant Chemistry and Plant Metabolism
o Plant Genetics and Plant Breeding
o Ethnobotany, Phytochemistry and Pharmacology
o Plant Physiology and Plant Pathology
o Plant-Microbe Interactions and Plant-Insect Interactions
o Plant Cell Biology and Plant Systems Biology
o Plant Genomics and Plant Proteomics
o Plant Genetic Resources and Plant Genomic Resources
o Plant Tissue Culture and Plant Biotechnology
o Plant Molecular Breeding and Plant Molecular Systematics
o Plant Based Biofuels and Bioenergy
o Transgenic Crops and Their Products
o Experimental, Environmental and Economic Botany
