The tenth IAPTC&B Congress, Plant Biotechnology 2002 and past, was once held June 23-28, 2002, at Disney's Coronado Springs hotel, in Orlando, Florida, united states. It used to be attended via 1,176 scientists from fifty four nations. the simplest and brightest stars of overseas plant biotechnology headlined the medical application. It integrated the hole tackle via the President of the IAPTC&B, 14 plenary lectures, and 111 keynote lectures and contributed papers offered in 17 symposia masking all features of plant biotechnology. greater than 500 posters supplemented the formal software. the prestigious audio system defined, mentioned and debated not just the easiest of technology that has been performed or is being performed, but additionally how the ability of plant biotechnology will be harnessed to satisfy destiny demanding situations and wishes. this system was once thinking about what's new and what's fascinating, what's cutting-edge, and what's at the leading edge of technology and know-how. in accordance with the overseas mandate of the IAPTC&B, seventy three of the a hundred twenty five audio system have been from outdoors the U.S., representing 27 nations from each zone of the area. The tenth IAPTC&B Congress was once a very world-class occasion.

The IAPTC&B, based in 1963 on the first foreign convention of plant tissue tradition prepared via Philip White within the usa, presently has over 1,500 participants in eighty five international locations. it's the biggest, oldest, and the main complete overseas specialist association within the box of plant biotechnology. The IAPTC&B has served the plant biotechnology neighborhood good via its many energetic nationwide chapters in the course of the international, through retaining and disseminating a club record and an internet site, by means of the ebook of an authentic magazine (formerly the Newsletter), and by way of organizing quadrennial overseas congresses in France (1970), the uk (1974), Canada (1978), Japan (1982), the U.S. (1963, 1986, 2002), The Netherlands (1990), Italy (1994), and Israel (1998). additionally, the IAPTC&B has an extended culture of publishing the court cases of its congresses. separately, those volumes have supplied authoritative quadrennial stories of the prestige of foreign plant biotechnology. jointly, they rfile the background of plant biotechnology in the course of the twentieth century. they're certainly a precious source.

We are happy to proceed this practice via publishing this lawsuits quantity of the tenth IAPTC&B Congress. unfortunately, we aren't in a position to put up seven of the lectures in complete (only their abstracts are included).

The American and Canadian chapters of the IAPTC&B, the Plant portion of the Society for In Vitro Biology, and the collage of Florida hosted the tenth IAPTC&B Congress. The Congress used to be a real partnership among academia and undefined, and was once generously supported via either teams (see record of donors/sponsors on again cover). a few famous foreign biotechnology businesses and publishers participated within the very profitable technological know-how and expertise show (see accompanying checklist of exhibitors) The IAPTC&B presented eighty four fellowships to younger scientists from 31 nations (see accompanying record of fellowship recipients) to help their participation within the Congress.

This near doubling of world population, combined with changing dietary habits in China and India as a result of improving economic conditions, will require more than doubling of world food production. The international agricultural community faces this challenge at a time when population is growing faster than increases in food productivity, when the quality and quantity of fresh water supplies are declining, when there is less per capita arable land available for food production (Table 4), when more than 42% of crop productivity is lost owing to various biotic and abiotic factors, and when the use of agro-chemicals which cause soil and water pollution is increasing.

In the ABA-independent pathways, there are several drought-inducible genes that do not respond to either cold or ABA treatment, which suggests that there is a specific pathway that functions in one of dehydration stress response (pathway III). , 1997). Promoter analysis of these genes will give us more information on pathway III. One of the ABA-independent pathways of drought-stress response overlaps with that of cold-stress response (pathway IV). A cis-acting element including A/GCCGAC, named the Dehydration Responsive Element (DRE) and C-Repeat (CRT), is essential for the regulation of the induction of rd29A under drought, low-temperature, and high-salt stress conditions in an ABAindependent pathway.
