Abstract Submission


The 2021 SS-ASPB meeting will be held virtually on Zoom to continue the tradition of presenting, discussing, and celebrating research pursuits from all areas of plant science. The topics presented at the meeting are varied in the subject to encompass a diverse group of scientists who work with plants and agricultural systems, or in several related disciplines including soil science, genomics, and bioinformatics. Scientists from all career stages and diverse positions are invited to attend and encouraged to showcase their research through poster and oral presentations. In particular, the meeting provides early career researchers, including undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral associates, the opportunity to present their plant-related research.
