Session 4: Plant Genetics and Plant Tissue Culture

Transgenes appear to be particularly sensitive to epigenetic variation which can lead to transgene silencing, i.e. the complete or partial inactivation of transgene expression. Plants are ideal model systems to study the influence of changing environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns. We are especially interested to understand how certain genomic regions become targets for epigenetic modification and how environmental stress affects epigenetic gene regulation.

Plant tissue culture is a collection of techniques used to maintain or grow plant cells, tissues or organs under sterile conditions on a nutrient culture medium of known composition.

Session 5: Plant Genomics

Plant Genomics is the field of plant science focused on understanding the sequence, structure and regulation of the genome. With the advent of low cost high-throughput sequencing, investigations of the genome have become much more sophisticated in recent years.  It is now possible to compare multiple genomes within a species (pan-genomes) as well as across species (comparative genomics). One of the major challenges facing the field today is developing tools to mine these massive datasets and to visualize the results of comparative studies.

Session 7: Plant Nanotechnology

The complex and different responses of plants to nanoparticles, the signal transduction mechanisms involved, and the regulation of DNA expression. Further, it showing the photosynthesis of nanoparticles, the role of nanoparticles in the antioxidant systems of botany and agriculture, the beneficial and harmful effects of nanoparticles on plants, and the application of nanoparticles and nanotubes to MS, aiming ultimately at an analysis of the metabolomics of plants. The increasing role of inventions in the field of nanotechnology is producing novel applications in the fields of biotechnology and agriculture. Nanoparticles have received much response because of the unique physico-chemical properties of these compounds. In the plant biology, nanoparticles are used as “smart” delivery systems, prompting the Nobel Prize winner P. Ehrlich support to get these compenents as “magic bullets.” Nanotechnology also play an important role in agriculture as compound fertilizers and minute-pesticides, acting as chemical delivery agents that target molecules to specific cellular organelles in plants.

Session 8: Medicinal Plant Sciences

The importance of plants has been concluded by scholars since ancient period. Apart from the innumerable social benefits, much strength has been given to the plants of medicinal value. Majority of the population in developing countries assume on traditional system of medicine for their primary health care. Due to this increasing trend towards use of different system of medicine, natural medicinal plant resource in this world is under enormous pressure. Several Institution/ Organization/ Universities and Industries across the world have been steady in research and documentation of various conditions of these medicinal plants to frame a system for their preserving. In this way numerous research papers on each medicinal plant covering vast subject areas like Botany, Chemistry, Pharmacology, Pharmacy etc. are available. This will help the scientific community to keep themselves restore with the research and development work being implemented for a particular medicinal plant. This researcher will also be a source of favorable information for students, teachers, practitioners all those who are involved in their propagation etc.

IMPORTANCE AND SCOPE
 
Plant Science Meeting 2019 is the study of the structure, function, growth and protection of plants. Plant science is divided into three major categories; they are agronomy, horticulture and forestry. Without plants, we and all other animals would not exist. We primarily depend on plants for food. They also have impact on the economy of a nation. Compared to the hundreds of plants on earth, we cultivate very few. Plant science has vibrant scope in conducting research in breeding, physiology, production, yield and management of crop. Plant science has the wide range of study field like plant morphology, plant pathology, molecular biology, plant genetics, photochemistry and many more subsequent fields.
Molecular biology is arguably one of the most important fields in biology. Plant biotechnology is leading the way in applications and will continue to bring innovations into the field. The field of plant biology is making remarkable steps forward in the use of genomics technologies to understand the mechanisms controlling many aspects of development, responses to the environment, hormone signalling, genome evolution and epigenetics. It seems that exciting times lie ahead for plant biotechnology that may lead to important applications in agriculture and other cultivation to help feed the growing global population.
Plant Science was expanded during the 1960s and 1970s as it had access to new land and unemployed labour. Between 1962 and 1983, the agricultural sector grew by 4.1% a year on average and in 1980 it employed over 70% of the working population. Yet, the state perceived developments in the agricultural sector as necessary for industrialization and exports were taxed in order to keep domestic prices low and raise revenue for state investment in other areas of the economy.

Conclusion

Global demand for agriculture is increasing rapidly due to rising need to grow high-yielding crops to meet the food demand. According to a study conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2016, the increased frequency of extreme weather events and global warming would adversely affect the livestock, crop, forestry, and aquaculture productivity in the years to come.

The global population is projected to surpass 9 billion by 2050 and it would be a challenge to ensure adequate crop production to meet the food demand. This would lead to new potential opportunities for crop improvement and plant science. Growing awareness about the benefits of plant culture in improving crop quality and yield is also positively impacting their domestic consumption.
