Plant Evolution Barcelona 2015


Evolution of plant phenotypes, from genomes to traits

A symposium and public workshop

Cosmocaixa auditorium, Tuesday 17 - Wednesday 18 March 2015

Evolution of plant phenotypes, from genomes to traits

Presentation

Connecting the genotype to phenotype is a grand biological challenge. Agriculture faces unprecedented challenges in the 21st century, necessitating a quantum leap forward in our ability to rapidly generate new plant varieties to meet rapidly changing agroecological conditions. This meeting will bring together leading-edge scientists working at the interface of plant evolution, crop domestication and breeding, molecular evolution, plant population genetics, plant physiology and bioinformatics to share new insights in plant evolutionary genomics and attempt to identify larger, unanswered questions and promising directions for future research.
