• Dynamics of Plant Development and Evolution, 30 Nov & 1 Dec 2017

Join us for this 1.5 day PSC symposium that focuses on the dynamic processes of plant development and evolution. Scientists from Switzerland and around the world present their latest research in these fields. Presentations focus on ongoing efforts to understand how plant shape, function and biotic interactions have evolved over time. These topics will be addressed at different scales: from cellular to tissue, organism and population level.

Students are encouraged to present a poster at the event. Posters from all plant science disciplines are welcome. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase PSC research achievements   the center’s broad scope.

The Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center will award three poster prizes.

Poster submission deadline is 29 October 2017.
