UK PlantSci provides a unique opportunity to meet with plant scientists outside of usual networks and to learn about the breadth of cutting edge plant science research going on in the UK. The meeting hosts a diverse range of talks, all held in plenary and pitched towards a general plant science audience. Every year our delegates report back to us on the value of this approach, citing the quality and breadth of talks among their favourite aspects of the conference.
