Dr. Tessa Pocock Invited Speaker at 2017 Phosphor Global Summit

Sensing and Signaling Networks in Plants.  What’s Light Got to Do with It? will be Dr. Tessa Pocock’s presentation on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the 2017 Phosphor Global Summit to be held at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla.  Recent advances in lighting technology are enabling the development of ‘designer’ crops. The use of light by plants is rapid and complex. Light is the primary energy source required for crop growth and development but it also contains signals that shape the plant down to sub-cellular levels. Two sensing and signaling networks exist in plants however their regulation is crop specific. The assessment of lighting and spectral distributions on photosynthesis, growth and phytochemical value will be presented.
