Phytola Science Meeting

The 2015 Phytola Science Meeting was held on September 16 to 17, 2015, at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta. Attendees were informed of the advancements made in oilseed sciences and biotechnology through Phytola’s research. There were two excellent keynote presentations from Dr. Ivo Feussner (Georg-August-University, Germany) and from the 2015 Eminent Scientist Award winner and Phytola Scientific Advisor Dr. Wolfgang Friedt.

This year's celebration of Phytola science will be posted here when the details have been confirmed.
