22-26th June 2020
The Rooting 2020 conference aims to bring together scientists in plant developmental biology, agriculture, horticulture, forestry, ecophysiology and biotechnology, with a shared interest in root development. It focuses on the genetic regulation and development of adventitious, primary and lateral roots and their interactions with the environment. Based on the tradition of the earlier symposia held in the US, Israel, The Netherlands, Spain, Canada, Germany and Sweden, the 9th International Symposium on Root Development aims to exchange recent knowledge and new ideas on fundamental and applied aspects of root biology in 7 themed sessions. Our 2020 Symposium features a new ‘hands on’ style session on Root Phenomics where delegates can experience new technologies for characterising root growth and development in controlled and field environments.
Registration opens Jan 2020. We are delighted to announce that several student bursaries sponsored by the IPPN Root Group are available to participate in the Rooting2020 meeting.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 9th International Symposium on Root Development at Nottingham in June.
Very best wishes on behalf of the local and international organising committees,
