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.


First class of plant breeders gradute from th eAfrican Plant Breeding Academy

Research sows the seeds for improved food security

Research from the University of Bath,UK has shown that it is possible to improve both seed size and seed number, opening new avenues to increase crop yields and improving food security.


Chloroplast Biotechnology

Ventura Beach, USA

The 2015 Gordon Research Conference on Chloroplast Biotechnology will present cutting-edge research by an international group of scientists interested in experimental approaches to probe chloroplast structure and function and to exploit plastome engineering for biotechnological applications.

Plant Receptor Kinases: From Molecules to Environment

New Mexico, USA

Cell surface receptor kinases are one of the major components used by plants to rapidly translate extracellular signals into appropriate intracellular responses to changing environmental and developmental conditions. This meeting highlights recent developments in our understanding of receptor kinases, from their evolution, to the pathways they are involved in, to the molecular details underlying their function (e.g., post-translational modifications, structure, cell biology).
