From genes to plant architecture: the shoot apical meristem in all its states

First European conference - Toumaï Conference Center Poitiers (France) 28-30 November 2022

INRAE and INRIA are happy to propose you to attend the first European conference on the integration of the functioning of shoot apical meristems, both terminal and lateral to the whole plant architecture. .

This three-day international conference will bring together researchers in an interdisciplinary event that aims at improving our knowledge and ability to simulate the genetic variability of plant morphogenesis responses to the environment. Keynotes and voluntary contributions on the functioning of the meristem, its regulation, its economy and the way plant architecture is designed. Other contributions will address the way plant architecture is represented in plant models. Finally, a third part of the conference will be dedicated to the avenues for future integration of meristem dynamics into next generation plant models.

Young and senior scientists are welcome to join and expose their work in an interdisciplinary context for updating our mutual knowledge in order to better understand how genes and environment interact at the meristem level to control the above ground plant morphogenesis.
