Application of Synchrotron Imaging for Crop Improvement Workshop 
 ( June 10, 2014 - June 12, 2014 )


The Canadian Light Source Application of Synchrotron Imaging for Crop Improvement Workshop will explore the application of synchrotron light to imaging plants to support the selection and development of superior crop lines.

The workshop will focus on imaging all components of the plant, from root to stem, and will explore ways plants can be structurally and functionally imaged, in-vivo to in-situ, and applying this information to aid in the development and selection of higher yielding crop varieties. It is believed that imaging will be a key tool in achieving the substantial increases in crop productivity to feed the world’s growing population.
 
See quality presentations, exhibitor booths, a poster session; network with some of the world’s leading innovators in this industry, in both research and commercialization; and tour the Canadian Light Source, Canada's only synchrotron.
