Symposium of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center

The symposium will highlight advances in plant science research from micro- to macro-scale by touching the art of data science.

It aims to answer key questions such as: How to find patterns in data? How to find patterns in nature? And what do they reveal?

►►► Due to the current pandemic situation this event will be held exclusively online.

Posters

• Poster abstract submission closed.

All posters are displayed here.
