We’re excited to announce the launch of a new Plant Science Events Calendar on Plantae.org. This service is provided free to the plant science community with the support of Agrisera, a Swedish company specializing in polyclonal and monoclonal antibody production, and longtime presence in the community. The concept originally came from Agrisera, and ASPB was thrilled to be able to provide the technology infrastructure to make it a reality.
“Over the last 20 years Agrisera supported or participated in hundreds of plant meetings. We observed that the amount of meetings is steadily increasing. They become more specialized, new meeting series were established. It is a great work of organizers of those meetings to gather quality speakers and spread the information about the meeting. We wanted to help them in doing that and this is how the idea of a global plant science calendar was born. We turned to ASPB, which we know for years as a fantastic platform which is gathering plant researchers from all corners of the world. They had the skill to create the calendar and after some discussions it came on line.”
