The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of plant and crop science societies from across the globe. GPC seeks to bring plant scientists together to work synergistically toward solving the pressing problems we face.

The central focus of the GPC is to define and engage in coordinated strategies and projects that will have impact on the most critical global issues: world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.


Plant Researchers Discover Wheat's Most Famous Gene

{Washington State University](http://www.wsu.edu/) (WSU) researchers have discovered "the most famous wheat gene" that can be used to transfer valuable genes from other plants to wheat. The gene, which WSU Professor Kulvinder Gill called Ph1, makes wheat fertile and controls the orderly pairing of wheat chromosomes during reproduction. However, the gene also prevents wheat from breeding with related ancestors.
