The Organizing Committee, the Scientific Committee, the Federation of European Plant Biology Societies, the Société Française de Biologie Végétale and the Institut des Biosciences et Biotechnologies d'Aix-Marseille are organizing the Plant Biology Europe congress, to be held at the Palais du Pharo in Marseille (France) from July 3 to 6, 2023.

Logotype PBE2023

This international meeting covers a wide range of plant science topics across multiple disciplines and scales. Previous editions, in Copenhagen and Turin, attracted some 900 scientists from Europe and around the world.

Among the many themes to be addressed during the meeting, particular emphasis will be placed on plants and climate change, algal biology and bioenergy.

INRAE communication

  • "An iterative gene editing strategy broadens eIF4E1 genetic diversity in Solanum lycopersicum, triggering resistance to multiple potyvirus isolates” Kyoka Kuroiwa

INRAE posters

  • "Systematic parent-specific expression perturbations in hybrid endosperms may explain how effective ploidy differences cause hybrid seed failure" Morgane Roth
  • "Deciphering plant resilience mechanisms to face the multiple disease challenge in fruit trees" Marie Serrie
  • "Identification of a major candidate gene for salt tolerance in tomato" Alexandre Hereil
  • "Resistance to viruses based on eIF4E:  from natural variation to edited genes" Jean-Luc Gallois

  •     Comparative genomics
  •     Chromosome dynamics
  •     Domestication in retrospect and the future of breeding
  •     Epigenetic mechanisms and responses in plants
  •     Genome editing and its use for plant breeding
  •     Interfaces with plant and soil microbiota
  •     Macro and micro nutrients in plants
  •     Mechanics and stress responses
  •     Organellar biology
  •     Photosynthesis: understanding and progress in its manipulation
  •     Plant adaptation to climate change
  •     Plant and algal development and evolution
  •     Plant Immunity
  •     Plant reproduction: mechanisms and evolution
  •     Plant responses to abiotic stress
  •     The genetic architecture of quantitative traits in plants
  •     The genetics of natural variation of plant-plant interactions
