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.
Improving the quality, availability and relevance of data on food and agriculture has become a key priority as Africa strives to develop more effective policies to tackle its persistent food security problems.
The African Orphan Crops Consortium (AOCC) opened on the 3rd December the African Plant Breeding Academy to help improve the livelihoods of Africa's smallholder farmers and their families, reduce hunger and boost Africa's food supply. AOCC's goal is to use the latest scientific equipment and techniques to genetically sequence, assemble and annotate the genomes of 100 traditional African food crops to guide the development of more robust produce with higher nutritional content.

The Plant and Animal Genome XXII Conference is designed to provide a forum on recent developments and future plans for plant and animal genome projects. Consisting of technical presentations, poster sessions, exhibits and workshops, the conference is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and applications on this internationally important project.
The symposium will focus on the relationship between molecular-level events and their higher-order behavior, comparing the properties of signaling systems in diverse species, including non-plant examples.The symposium will be structured around common signaling features, such as switching between on and off states, the control of specificity, robustness in an unstable environment, and modulation of the sensitivity of the system by its activity or by external factors.
