In recent years, a significant number of studies have discovered how light, photoperiodism and circadian clock function impact cell and molecular connections and regulatory systems in plant biology. This research has provided the scientific community with valuable complex information on the regulation of growth processes in plants, which are key to improving farming.
The International Center for Scientific Debate has collaborated with the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) to organize a meeting of multidisciplinary experts that work on circadian rhythms, photoperiodism and light signaling to explore the mechanical aspects, connections and impact of these three phenomena on plant biology.
Participants from more than 15 countries will participate in this event, which aims to obtain additional knowledge on how these three factors, which together impact the growth of plant species and their regulatory mechanisms, determine germination, branching and flowering processes. In addition to conferences and debates, the program will also include an exhibition and poster-presentation space.
