FROM a global audience

TO a global audience

Sign on and get a ringside seat to some of the world’s best plant science research– facilitated by cutting-edge technologies which expand the traditional limits of communication, collaboration, and networking–and now available to the plant science community all over the world.  Following on from the huge success of last year’s Plant Biology 2020 conference, which welcomed attendees from 56 countries, our theme from 2021 is FROM a global audience TO a global audience and that international perspective will be reflected throughout the program.

We can’t wait for you to join us in July.

What will you find at the Plant Biology 2021 Worldwide Summit?

The Plant Biology Annual meeting is brought to you by the Program Committee of ASPB, the American Society of Plant Biologists. Here’s just a sample of what you’ll find here.

World renowned speakers – The program will provide a rich mix of scientific content from all over the world in plenary talks and concurrent symposia.

Virtual posters – The online environment provides the opportunity for poster presenters to expand the content of their posters with video and other enhanced features, while continuing to network via live chat.

Professional development and other topical workshops providing participatory experiences facilitated by many plant scientists from our community.

A content-rich exhibitor showcase – To help you find the tools and technologies you need for your research while visiting with vendors in real-time.

Group Networking and social activities – A variety of structured and ad hoc opportunities for small-group networking, group discussions and fun ways to connect with fellow scientists at all career levels.

One-on-one networking.  After you register, please fill out your online profile as you’ll see several ways to find others in your specific field or geographic location, for example.

All of these features can be accessed through your computer, tablet, or smartphone.  Find answers to any technical questions here [COMING SOON!].

Symposium V: Applications of Robotics, Sensing, and AI to Plant Science

George Kantor

Symposium V: Applications of Robotics, Sensing, and AI to Plant Science

This session will address new and emerging AI tools for plant science, with a particular emphasis on agricultural applications such as plant breeding and production management. Robotic platforms now have the ability to get around autonomously in field environments, with modalities that include drones that can fly over crops, over-row tractors, and small under-row ground vehicles. These machines can carry sensing payloads capable of automatically collecting measurements at scale, such as imagery, hyperspectral measurements, and even measurements such as leaf clamps that require contact with the plant. When combined with genotype data and environmental data from in-situ sensor networks, the result is a massive heterogeneous data set that has the potential to provide new insights into problems such as plant physiology, crop improvement, and crop management. But processing that data set presents a number of AI challenges, ranging from extracting useful features from individual images to big-data analysis to understand GxExP relationships and provide actionable decision support. This is a large vision, with many facets. The talks in this session will explore some of the key aspects, including field robotics, AI for sensing, rapid phenotyping, AI-driven plant modeling, and AI informatics.

 Symposium IV: RNA: the long and short of it

Xuemei Chen

Symposium IV: RNA: the long and short of it

RNAs are versatile molecules that serve informational, structural, catalytic, regulatory, and signaling roles in cells. Mechanisms that generate, process, modify, utilize and degrade RNAs are central to nearly all biological processes. This session focuses on recent findings on novel functions of small regulatory RNAs and metabolic processes on long RNAs.

Heather Hallen-Adams

Symposium III: SYMBIOSES

Botany 2021 and PB21 are pleased to announce a joint session open to all attendees of both conferences. Five international experts will speak on diverse symbioses, including endophytes, endofungal symbionts, mycorrhizae, and lichens, with opportunities to engage throughout the symposium. Join us for three hours of exploration of interkingdom interactions.
