The growing concern over global food and energy security results from rising population, while land degradation and climate change continue to limit production. One of society-s major challenges is to grow more biomass on less land, using less water, fertilizer, fungicides and pesticides than ever before. To accomplish this, a new “green revolution” that surpasses the rate of current crop and fuel production is required and improving photosynthetic CO2 assimilation is key to achieving this goal. The Gordon Research Conference (GRC), CO2 Assimilation in Plants from Genome to Biome, is among the most critical forums for bringing together the top plant scientists in the world, along with rising early-career scientists, to share and discuss the critical advances on this grand challenge. At this meeting scientists will present and discuss cutting edge, often unpublished research, that is geared toward the new “green revolution” and that will develop ideas and collaborations to guide and support research on carbon aspects of photosynthesis for years to come.
