Plant Health 2021 Online: Seismic Shifts in Disease Risk
8/2/2021 - 8/6/2021
Join The American Phytopathological Society (APS) from August 2 to 6 for a virtual annual meeting, exploring major shifts in bacterial, viral, nematode, and fungal pathosystems that help anticipate and deflect future shifts in disease risk.

IS-MPMI Event2021 IS-MPMI Congress: September 15 – 16 eSymposia – Pathogen-Host Coevolution — Combating Resistance Breaking in Agriculture
9/15/2021 - 9/16/2021
Plants and pathogens are often locked in co-evolutionary arms races. Session 1 will focus on how pathogens have evolved an array of strategies to manipulate the host immune system and approaches that lead to a greater understanding of pathogen evolution. We will discuss the molecular dialogue of pathogens with plants but also how tracing pathogen emergence at the level of populations, species and beyond can provide key insights. Session 2 will focus on the arsenal of host strategies deployed in response to pathogen attack. Topics will include the role of immune receptor networks, computational approaches and broad spectrum resistance.

IS-MPMI Event2021 IS-MPMI Congress: December 1 – 2 eSymposia – Plant-Microbe Interactions in the Environment — Navigating a Complex World
12/1/2021 - 12/2/2021
That plants engage with beneficial microbes while simultaneously restricting pathogens is critical to their survival. This symposium will cover how plants navigate interactions with pathogens, mutualists and the microbiome to maximize health and fitness. Topics will include how molecular signaling allows plants to distinguish friend from foe, and how microbe-microbe interactions, environmental signals and nutrient status are integrated with plant immunity to shape plant-microbe and plant-microbiome interactions. Finally, we will add an evolutionary perspective to the plant microbiome.
