Plant Science for Climate Emergency
7 - 8 June 2021
Gent, BelgiumPlant Science for Climate Emergency https://www.vibconferences.be/events/plant-science-for-climate-emergency?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Conference%20website%20post&utm_campaign=Event%20posting&utm_content=Elixir 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.

Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition)
23 - 24 September 2021
Gent, BelgiumGenome Engineering and Synthetic Biology (4th edition) https://www.vibconferences.be/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/genome-engineering-and-synthetic-biology-4th-edition Genome Engineering and Synthetic Biology are revolutionizing Life Sciences. Driven by advances in the CRISPR-toolbox for rapid, cheap, multiplex modification of genomes and breakthroughs in DNA synthesis technologies, the pace of progress enabled by these tools in the last years has been breathtaking. The first three editions (September 2013, January 2016, January 2018) were a roaring success and we are pleased to announce the 4th edition of GESB in beautiful Ghent in September, 2020.
