Research interests include plant-pathogen interactions, crop genetics and genomics, genome sequencing, Brassicas, structural variation, diversity genomics, methylation

Isabel Bäurle

Isabel Bäurle is an Assistant Professor at the University of Potsdam, Germany. Her current interests range from transcriptional memory in response to environmental stress to transposon and RNA silencing. Having previously worked on plant stem cells and flowering time, she has a background in plant developmental genetics, molecular biology and epigenetics.

Gerrit T.S. Beemster

Professor of Biology at the University of Antwerp. Member of the Flemish Science Foundation review board. Editor of the journals Journal of Plant Research, Frontiers in Plant Science and PLOS ONE

Ton Bisseling

Professor of Developmental Biology in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Department of Plant Sciences, Wageningen University, The Netherlands.

Rachel A Burton

I am currently a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, based at the University of Adelaide. I undertook my PhD at the John Innes Centre, Norwich. My expertise is in the areas of plant molecular biology particularly as it relates to cell wall biosynthesis, re-modeling and degradation and how these impact cereal end use quality. I also have an interest in the development and application of novel experimental methods for transcript profiling and gene discovery.

Gabriele Casazza

My current research interests focus on the study of biogeography and conservation of endemic plants . Research topics include the effects of past and future climate change, the reproductive biology, the phylogeography and the taxonomy.

Andrea L Case

Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Kent State University; Executive Vice President, Society for the Study of Evolution

My research is focused on the evolution of reproductive systems in flowering plants.
