Forthcoming Special Issue

Special issue on “International Plant Physiology Congress - Challenges and Strategies in Plant Biology Research” 

Issue Editors: Dr. Ashwani Pareek, Dr. Viswanathan Chinnusami

3rd International Plant Physiology Congress (IPPCongress-2015) was planned to address the challenging issues concerning the crop productivity. One of the major challenges before the researchers/scientists is to increase crop productivity to feed the increasing population through optimal utilization of natural resources, from decreasing per capita available arable land. The problem of food scarcity is further aggravated by environmental concerns over the use of inorganic fertilizers and chemicals for controlling diseases and pests and the impact of global warming.
The Congress was held at the Convention Center, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi from December 11 to 14, 2015 under the aegis of the Indian Society of Plant Physiology, New Delhi. The event was co-hosted by Indian Society of Plant Physiology, Jawaharlal Nehru University and National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi. The proposed program of the congress provided a platform for discussion of major issues, hurdles as well as developments related to plant biology research.
The conference brought together the leading scientists and scholars in the area of plant biology to discuss the practical challenges, concerns and strategies in the field, promoted collaborations and information exchange and share the new findings. There were two plenary lectures on each day by the prominent researchers who highlighted recent progress and knowledge gaps related to current topics.

The Major Thrust Areas of the Conference were: 

• Abiotic Stress: Adaptation and Management
• Photosynthesis
• Signaling and Photo-transduction
• Genomics-assisted Plant Improvement
• Genomics, Epigenomics and Regulation Biology
• Physiology of Flowering and Applications
• Biotic Stress: Management and Interactions
• Computational and Systems Biology
• Plant Nutrition: Physiology and Genetics
• Plant Metabolism and Metabolomics
• Plant Growth Regulators and Applications
• Reproductive Biology
There were two interactive sessions for presentation of posters and several best posters awards were given. The Congress provided opportunities to young investigators and students to highlight their work and exchange ideas with the leaders in the field through posters or oral presentations.
