30TH ISTA SEED SYMPOSIUM
The 30th ISTA Seed Symposium, to be held in Antalya, Turkey from 12 to 14 June 2013, will cover a wide range of seed related topics including
Genetic conservation Seed quality and plant breeding
Seed pathology Application of Molecular markers
Habitat regeneration Seed quality evaluation
Seed germination and dormancy Seed physiology and stress responses
The overall theme of the symposium will be:
Evaluation of seed quality: a key step in exploiting the benefits of plant breeding and genetic conservation
The symposium will be made up of five oral sessions (see below), and two poster sessions, each of 2 hours, covering the same topics. Each oral session will be chaired by a lead speaker who is well known in the field of seed science and technology
Role of quality evaluation in seed production
Chair and Lead Speaker: Francisco Kryzanowski, Brazil
Multiplication of new cultivars; maintenance of genetic purity; environmental and maternal effects on quality; production and processing; conventional and organic seed production; epidemiology and modelling; seed treatments.
Physiological, biochemical and molecular markers of seed quality
Chair and Lead Speaker: Francoise Corbineau, France
Stress and desiccation tolerance, genomics, proteomics, development and maturation, regulation and induction of dormancy, germination; seed longevity; disease resistance.
Advanced methods in seed quality evaluation
Chair and Lead Speaker: Beni Kaufman, USA
Automatic and computer based methods; image analysis; DNA-based methods; variety identification; purity analysis; seed pathology; germination
Seed storage for commercial use and genetic conservation
Chair and Lead Speaker: Robin Probert, UK
Seed collection and handling effects on germination and longevity; seed moisture content and water activity; storage conditions in relation to quality; orthodox and recalcitrant seeds, identification of quality traits in non-crop species
Evaluation and improvement of physiological quality
Chair and Lead Speaker: Alison Powell, UK
Evaluation of germination and vigour; seed quality in relation to field establishment, transplant production, land reclamation / regeneration; response to stress (e.g. pathogens, drought, salinity, soil contaminants)
Paper submission: Intending participants are encouraged to present oral and poster papers dealing with a range of topics under the above theme. The research reported in offered papers can cover both the scientific basis of aspects of seed quality and its technological application in seed testing. In all sessions, we welcome papers on tropical and temperate crop species, wild species, flowers, trees and shrubs including species with potential for use in plant breeding and in habitat regeneration.
Call for papers:
1st Call for papers May 2012
2nd Call for papers August 2012
Deadline for paper submission 26 October 2012
