  • At The Forefront Of Plant Research

    15 - 16 June 2017

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    At The Forefront Of Plant Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB conferences@vib.be [] Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences [] plantbiologygenomics
  • 4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium

    11 - 13 September 2018

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    4th Plant Protease and Programmed Cell Death Symposium https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/4th-plant-protease-and-programmed-cell-death-symposium After three successful conferences on Plant Proteases and Programmed Cell Death organized in Hemavan, Sweden (2011); Barcelona, Spain (2013); and Oxford, UK (2016), it is our pleasure to host the fourth meeting in the beautiful medieval town of Ghent, Belgium. The roles of proteases in cell death, immunity, and developmental processes in plants have received increasing attention over the past years. On the one hand, proteases exert a key regulatory level of posttranslational modification on their substrates. On the other hand, proteolytic cascades are involved in household functions, as well as responsible for point-of-no-return decisions during developmentally or environmentally controlled programmed cell death. Despite their importance, however, we still know little about the functions and mode-of-actions of individual plant proteases. Over the past years, several research groups have tackled the functional characterization of plant proteases from different angles. Some laboratories are advancing technology development, others focus on biological processes that depend on protease activities, while again others elucidate the biochemistry of specific protease families. The aim of our meeting is to bring researchers of these different research directions together to discuss the latest developments and concepts in the field of plant proteases and programmed cell death. 2018-09-11 15:00:00 UTC 2018-09-13 22:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen, Gent, Belgium Het Pand, 1, Onderbergen Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium Plant biology [] Moritz Nowack 0032 9 331 38 00 moritz.nowack@vib.be [] [] [] [] plant proteaseplant cell deathplantsprotease
  • Regulatory Oxylipins

    1 - 4 April 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Regulatory Oxylipins https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/regulatory-oxylipins Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones. Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment. There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology. We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!

  • International Conference on Polyploidy

    11 - 14 June 2019

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    International Conference on Polyploidy https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/international-conference-on-polyploidy The International Conference on Polyploidy will present cutting edge research into the importance of polyploidy and whole genome duplication for genetics, evolution and ecology. For the 2019 meeting, which will take place at the beautiful city of Ghent, we are trying to put together an exciting program focusing on many different aspects of polyploidy, such as the short- and long-term ecological and evolutionary consequence of polyploidy for plant and animal systems, but also polyploidy in somatic cells and clonal populations will be discussed. The International Conference on Polyploidy will present a unique opportunity to meet and discuss with colleagues, get updated on the newest developments and insights into recent and ancient polyploidy and whole genome duplication, and will provide unique possibilities to network and discuss collaborations. We are delighted to announce that Dr. Ilia Leitch (Kew Gardens) has agreed to deliver the plenary lecture on Tuesday afternoon, June 11th, opening the meeting.

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Plant Science for Climate Emergency https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency Climate change is one of the most serious threats humanity has ever faced. Developing crops that are more resilient to rapidly changing and harsher environments will be crucial for tomorrow’s food production. Green biotechnology offers solutions to maintain high food productivity while preserving the earth’s valuable ecosystems. In addition, plants may also play an important role in mitigating the rising levels of greenhouse gases. This VIB conference ‘Plant Science for Climate Emergency’ aims at reviewing current research on adapting plants to climate change as well as on using plants for mitigating the accumulation of greenhouse gasses. Twenty leaders in plant biotechnology will present the latest developments in sessions focused on drought tolerance, tolerance to high temperatures, salt and flooding tolerance, the effects of climate change on defense systems against insects and pathogens, carbon capturing plants, crop engineering and improvement, nitrogen use efficiency, and much more. Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during the poster sessions, the reception, and the conference dinner.
