CONFERENCE BY RECTOR PERATA: Flood-tolerant PLANTS IN LOW OXYGEN CONDITIONS - SCUOLA SUPERIORE DI CATANIA, ON NOVEMBER 8, 2017. Content IS AVAILABLE THROUGH LIVE STREAMING
The seminar "Oxygen sensing and signaling in plants” held in Catania on November 8th by Professor Pierdomenico Perata, rector of Sant'Anna School and scientific coordinator of the Institute of Life Sciences PlantLab, focused on the specific signaling mechanisms of low oxygen-sensing during floods, on survival of cells that are deprived of oxygen and on changes in gene expression and metabolism that allow a plant to survive submergence for an extended number of days. Ranging from floods to droughts, researchers are working on the potential applications for the stress-response gene characteristics; their goal is to increase crop tolerance and to develop flood-proof varieties.
Professor Francesco Basile, rector of the University of Catania, and Professor Francesco Priolo, president of the Scuola Superiore di Catania, will give the introduction speech for the guest speakers at 5.30 pm in the aula magna of Villa San Saverio (via Valdisavoia 9, Catania).
You can watch here live streaming broadcasts of Professor Pierdomenico Perata’s seminar. Live streaming can be achieved with an internet-connected device in real-time.
