Plant Imaging Conference - June 10-12Radisson HotelSaskatoon, SK

The Application of Synchotron Imaging for Crop Improvement Workshop will explore the application of synchotron light to imaging plants to support the selection and development of superior crop lines.

The workshop will look at ways plants can be structurally and functually imaged, in-vivo to in-situ, and applying this information to aid in the development and selection og higher yielding crop varieties.

The workshop will focus on imaging all components of the plant, from root to stem. It is believed that imaging will be a key tool in achieving the substantial increases in crop productivity to feed the world's growing population.
