Plant Apoplastic Diffusion Barriers

PADiBa 2015

 2 - 4 September, 2015, Nantes, France
 La Cité Nantes Event Center  


In the context of climate changes and growing environmental problems, researches on plant apoplastic diffusion barriers received increasing interest in the last past years. Actually, these barriers are essential for plant development and protecting plants from environmental stress (heat and water stress, resistance to bioagressors, interaction with atmospheric and water pollutants). Consequently, they play a crucial role on crop production and quality as well as on the development of a sustainable, environmentally friendly agriculture. The PADIBA symposia intend to become the leading places to regularly exchange novelties and ideas between scientists of different scientific disciplines working on the structure, biosynthesis, biological and physical properties of the apoplastic diffusion barriers.

After the success story of PADIBA 2013 in Lausanne and the rapid progress of our knowledge on this exciting topic of plant biology, the organization of a second symposium in 2015 received the unanimous and enthusiastic support of the scientific community gathered on the banks of the lake Léman.

The organizing and scientific committees of PADIBA 2015 are proud and pleased to welcome this second symposium in Nantes, on the estuary of the Loire River and at the gates of the Loire Valley, “the Garden of France”. 

Résumé de ce site en français 

L’INRA organise le congrès international Plant Apoplastic Diffusion Barrier ; Biosynthesis, Structures and Functions «  (PADiBa) du 2 au 4 septembre 2015 à la Cité des Congrès de Nantes.

Qu'elles soient aériennes (cuticule des plantes) ou souterraines (subérine des racines), les barrières hydrophobes apoplastiques des plantes constituent la principale plateforme d’échange entre la plante et son environnement.

PadiBa est une occasion unique de rassembler les meilleures équipes de manière pluridisciplinaires (des généticiens, physiologistes, écophysiologistes, microbiologistes, structuralistes, chimistes, etc) sur un thème en plein essor.
