This website covers the activities of the COST Action FA0605, the signalling control of abiotic stress tolerance and production of stress protective compounds in plants. The aim is to build an international network of plant abiotic stress. The research priorities of the action are centred on complementary expertise allocated to four Working Groups that perform coordinated research in specific fields of plant stress biology:
- Functional characterisation of protein kinases
- Genetic identification of signalling factors
- Expression of genes involved in the production of osmo-protectants
- Integrated molecular analysis of the polyamine metabolic pathway
Included here is the Monitoring Progress Report plus annexes 2011.
The conference continues a series of meetings held in Matera (2008), Tartu (2009), and Valencia (2010). This year, the conference will be held in Limassol, a vibrant city representing one of the most popular and beautiful places in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.
Recently, COST Action COSTFA0605 was presented in the Keystone Symposia on Molecullar and Cellular Biology celebrated in Keystone, Colorado. More information regarding the program can be found in the following link:
Reschedule of the Third meeting of FA0605 "Plant Abiotic Stress: from signalling to crop improvement"Wed, 05/05/2010 - 12:31 — Alba Fernandez
Due to the problems on the airspace in Europe, the meeting was rescheduled from April to May.
The Third meeting of FA0605 "Plant Abiotic Stress: from signalling to crop improvement", will be held in Valencia, Spain, 26th-27th May, 2010.
