Introduction

THE WORSKSHOP IS POSTPONED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS, WE WILL STAY IN TOUCH WITH YOU TO ORGANISE THE WORKSHOP LATTER, PROBABLY IN SEPTEMBER.

 

In the emerging bioeconomy, optimization of plant biomass into biobased products and energy has become essential. But the chemical and structural complexity of plant cell walls makes them recalcitrant to simple transformation and thus requires a deeper understanding of their architecture through imaging tools.

The goal of the "Imaging plants at different scales: from 3D image acquisition to multi-scale modeling" workshop is to gather scientists conducting state of art research involving plant cell wall image acquisition, image processing, and image based modelling. The invited speakers will present how 4D (space + time) imaging combined with image processing and multi-scale modelling can provide novel insights into key features describing biological systems’ dynamics.

Participants are welcomed to contribute to this workshop with oral and poster presentations related to these topics.
