The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies representing plant, crop and agricultural and environmental sciences across the globe.

The GPC seeks to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training, to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.


GPC/SEB Symposium on Plant Stress Resilience: deadlines extended!

English: Stress Resilience Symposium – Deadlines now extended!

Cells cling and spiral ‘like vines’ in first 3D tissue scaffold for plants

New cost-effective material which mimics natural ‘extracellular matrix’ has allowed scientists to capture previously unseen behaviour in individual plant cells, including new shapes and interactions. New methods highlight potential developments for plant tissue engineering.


III Current Opinion Conference on Plant Genome Evolution

NH Grand Krasnapolsky Hotel, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

It is our pleasure to announce the third Current Opinion Conference on Plant Genome Evolution, to be held in Amsterdam, 6-8 September 2015. We are delighted to be holding this (now biannual) event again after a very successful first and second meeting in 2011 and 2013 where renowned plant researchers gave inspiring talks and where many discussed their latest research in the field. For the 2015 meeting, we are even more ambitious than the previous years and are trying to put together an even more exciting programme focused on (new) plant genomes, natural variation, domestication, epigenetics, and systems biology, of course all with a strong emphasis on evolution and evolutionary aspects.
