2015 "Future Plan[t]s"

The theme of our third meeting was "Future Plan[t]s", where we focused not only on recent developments in plant science, but also into the aspects involved in the development and growth of plant scientists and their careers.

Plants and People 2015 took place on September 7th-8th. To find more about "Future Plan[t]s", please have a look at our Programme and Abstract book.
