“Harnessing Culture Collections for Improved Plant Health” workshop – ICPP 2023

December 20, 2022
August 20, 2023


Lyon, France

Satellite Event of

12th International Congress of Plant Pathology (ICCP2023)

Organized in Collaboration with

International Alliance for Phytobiomes Research




This workshop will identify the diversity of culture collections and explore how these living microbial stock collections are being used to improve plant health.

We will present successful strategies and tools that are being used with these essential biological resources to further plant health research. We will discuss proper maintenance and curation of collections, how these essential stocks support plant growth within changing environments, disease diagnostics; and combat biotic and abiotic stresses.

The fundamental knowledge gained with this session will support and enhance efforts that are underway to broaden and strengthen the U.S. and European collection community and their networks.
