The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies and affiliates 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.


Flower forms in the primrose: Biologists unlock 51.7-million-year-old genetic secret to landmark Darwin theory

Scientists have identified the cluster of genes responsible for reproductive traits in the common primrose flower (Primula vulgaris), first noted as important by Charles Darwin more than 150 years ago.

Shifts in mating strategies help herbicide-resistant 'superweeds' persist

Herbicide-resistant "superweeds" change their mating strategies over time, an evolutionary shift that helps them hold onto valuable genes and outcompete other plants, according to a new study from University of Michigan researchers.


Training course: Proteomics Bioinformatics

EMBL-EBI, Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK

This course, run jointly with Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences, will provide hands-on training in the basics of mass spectrometry and proteomics bioinformatics. Topics wil include search engines and post-processing software, quantitative approaches, MS data repositories, the use of public databases for protein analysis, annotation of subsequent protein lists and incorporation of information from molecular interaction and pathway databases.
