Following the tweet stream for Monday’s talks.
Next up was Dr David Fischhoff with Technological innovations for tomorrow’s crops. I think the morning coffees had started to take effect.
And with that the congress split in two. In one hall Loren Rosenberg and Daniel Ortiz-Barrientos were tackling Plant speciation. The first talk was The nature of species boundaries in plants.
Tweets picked up again in the afternoon with 20 (yes twenty) parallel sessions. I’ll try to put the tweets together by session. @Jim_Croft was in The Global Plants Initiative: a digital resource for plant biodiversity research.
Next were Jeff Bennetzen with Foxtail Millet as a model for biofuel feedstocks and Jer-Ming Chia The amazing genomes of maize.
The final tweet in this session came from Structure-function studies in the wheat genome by Gabriel Keeble-Gagnere.
@JChrisPires tweeted from Monocot phylogeny and evolution.
Dating the plant Tree of Life: biological and methodological questions had @TimEntwhistle tweeting.
@JChrisPires reported from Evolution in orchids — at the interface of populations and species.
@Pat_HH was in for Resource use efficient plants and crop systems
