Welcome

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.

Genome Duplication Secret to Plant Regeneration

Scientists have found out how plants regenerate after being munched by grazing animals. They report that a plant can dramatically rebound after being cut down because of a process called genome duplication, in which individual cells make multiple copies of all their genetic content. This process has been known to researchers and scientists for decades, but few have pondered its purpose.

Photosynthesis 'Switch' Increases Rice Yields by 30%

Scientists from the {University of Arkansas](http://www.uark.edu/) have found out that they can harness photosynthesis to increase rice yields by up to 30 percent. Led by Andy Pereira, the research group examined a protein that acts as a "switch" to activate genes that can enhance the photosynthesis activity of rice plants.
