The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies and affiliates representing plant, crop and agricultural and environmental sciences across the globe.

The GPC seeks to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training, to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.

The GPC supports the principles of open science and the free dissemination of information around the world, particularly to those in countries without access to research media.

Scientists uncover a new face of a famous protein, SWI2/SNF2 ATPase

A team of Texas A&M and Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientists now have a deeper understanding of a large switch/sucrose non-fermentable (SWI/SNF) protein complex that plays a pivotal role in plant and human gene expression that causes life-threatening diseases such as cancer.


Pesticides: What happens if we run out of options?

To slow the evolutionary progression of weeds and insect pests gaining resistance to herbicides and pesticides, policymakers should provide resources for large-scale, landscape-level studies of a number of promising but untested approaches for slowing pest evolution. Such landscape studies are now more feasible because of new genomic and technological innovations that could be used to compare the efficacy of strategies for preventing weed and insect resistance.


Events

2nd Asia-Pacific Plant Phenotyping Conference

Nanjing, China

Plant phenotyping is a young interdisciplinary research, which emphasizes the communication and collaboration of scientists from different areas, such as biology, computer science, physics etc. To meet this requirement, the 1st Asia-Pacific Plant Phenotyping Conference was initiated and held in Beijing in October, 2016. More than 200 participants from 67 institutes of 13 countries attended the conference.


Transmitting science course - Introduction to Photogrammetry and Laser Scan *GPC member discount!*

Barcelona (Spain)

This course is addressed to researchers and technicians who routinely work with complex biological structures (specimens) and need to digitise their samples for different reasons, such as digital preservation, quantitative or biomechanics analyses, etc.
