2016 marks 50 years since the publication of the biochemical characterisation of the C4 pathway by Hal Hatch and Roger Slack. This conference commemorates this discovery and its significance in today’s plant biology and agricultural research. The Conference will bring together world experts in the field of C4 photosynthesis ranging from molecular genetics to ecophysiology to applied efforts to engineer C4 into C3 crops. This is an exciting opportunity for a cross disciplinary meeting and offers great promise of translational outcomes for biofuels and food production not dreamt of 50 years ago.
