Scientific Sessions

Tissue culture in pharmaceuticals  Plants produce a wide variety of secondary metabolites. They have been used in traditional medicines for a long period of time, and are important today as pharmaceuticals, food additives, and industrial materials. As these metabolites are often accumulated in relatively low quantities in specified plant species. Techniques for Medicinal plants ... Read More
Plant genetics and epigenetics partial inactivation of transgene expression. To review the influence of adjusting environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns, plants area unit ideal model systems Seed dormancy and germination Sub Tracks:Vernalization,Analysis of genetic activity, genome,epigenome,New opportunities for crop breeding. Relevant societies:American Agricultura... Read More
Plant biology  Divaricates with the study of plant development and plant life. It configures with wide range of topics as they may include plant growth and structure, metabolism, morphology and anatomy of the plant, physiological mechanisms. Secondary metabolism of plants ... Read More
Plant Physiology Plant physiology is a subdiscipline of botany concerned with the functioning, or physiology, of plants closely related fields include plant morphology (structure of plants), plant ecology (interactions with the environment), phytochemistry (biochemistry of plants), cell biology, genetics, biophysics, and molecular biology. Fundamental processes su... Read More
Plant Pathology Plant pathology (also phytopathology) is the scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens (infectious organisms) and environmental conditions (physiological factors). Organisms that cause infectious diseases include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes, and parasitic pla... Read More
Plant Biotechnology Plant biotechnologies that assist in developing new varieties and traits include genetics and genomics, market-assisted selection (MAS), and transgenic (genetically engineered) crops. These biotechnologies allow researchers to detect and map genes, discover their functions, select for specific genes in genetic resources and breeding, and transfer g... Read More
Horticulture  Apply knowledge, skills, and technologies to grow intensively produced plants for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs. Their work involves plant propagation and cultivation with the aim of improving plant growth, yields, quality, nutritional value, and resistance to insects, diseases, and environmental stresses. They wor... Read More
Soil Science The study of soil as a natural resource on the surface of the Earth including soil formation, classification and mapping; physical, chemical, biological, and fertility properties of soils; and these properties in relation to the use and management of soils .Soil scientists have raised concerns about how to preserve soil and arable land in a world w... Read More
Plant Nanotechnology An innovative technology developed at the Technion could lead to significant increases in agricultural yields. Using a nanometric transport platform on plants that was previously utilized for targeted drug delivery, researchers increased the penetration rate of nutrients into the plants, from 1% to approximately 33% Use of nanotechnology for target... Read More
Prebiotics and probiotics Cultivation of crops requires nutrient supplements which are costly and impact the environment. Furthermore, global demands for increased crop production call for sustainable solutions to increase yield and utilize resources such as nutrients more effectively. Some entomopathogenic fungi are able to promote plant growth, but studies over such effec... Read More
Forestry It is the science and craft of creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. Forestry is practiced in plantations and natural stands .The science of forestry has elements that belong to the biological, physical, social, political and managerial sciences. Fore... Read More
Agro technology  Technology of agriculture, as the methods or machinery needed for efficient production. Agro technology focuses on technological processes used in agriculture, to create an understanding of how processes, equipment and structures are used with people, soil, plants, animals and their products, to sustain and maintain quality of life and to promote... Read More
Organic forming and production It is a method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. Organic production is a holistic system designed to optimize the productivity and fitness of diverse communities within the agro-ecosystem, including soil organis... Read More
Transgenic plants  Whose DNA is modified using genetic engineering techniques. The aim is to introduce a new trait to the plant which does not occur naturally in the species. A transgenic plant contains a gene or genes that have been artificially inserted. The inserted gene sequence is known as the transgene, it may come from an unrelated plant or from a completely... Read More
Plant breeding techniques Changing the traits of plants in order to produce desired characteristics. It has been used to improve the quality of nutrition in products for humans and animals. Plant breeding can be accomplished through many different techniques ranging from simply selecting plants with desirable characteristics for propagation, to methods that make use of kno... Read More
Fertilization The gametes that participate in fertilization of plants are the pollen (male), and the egg (female) cell. Various families of plants have differing methods by which the female gametophyte is fertilized. In Bryophyte land plants, fertilization takes place within the archegonia. In flowering plants a second fertilization event involves another sperm ... Read More
