III. International PP1530 Symposium

Genetic Variation of Flowering Time Genes and Applications for Crop Improvement: March 14-16, 2018.

The timing of flowering relies on a complex network of genetic and regulatory pathways and the integration of a variety of environmental cues. In the past years we have gained increasing knowledge of flowering time regulation in Arabidopsis thaliana and numerous crop species. Flowering time regulators are important for crop plant domestication and adaptation to different environments. Their pleiotropic effects can impact important traits such as yield and stress tolerance. Moreover, the phenological development of a plant can be drastically altered by mutation and genetic modification of major flowering time regulators. We welcome contributions for oral presentations and posters from model species and any kind of cultivated plants, including annual and biennial species used in agriculture and horticulture, fruit trees and forest trees.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
