(canceled)ERATO International Symposium: Chemistry and Plant Biology

Considering the impact on the health of participants, this symposium is canceled due to the increased risk of the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection in Japan.

ERATO International Symposium Poster

Chemistry and Plant Biology Symposium focuses the scientific boundaries between chemistry and plant biology, especially, researches on plant biology and biotechnology using chemistry and/or chemical methodology. The chemistry- and plant biology-related multidisciplinary research has recently been attractive and hot topics with involving various scientific communities. This might be because plant science has a great potential to contribute to “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.
The aim of this symposium is to bridge the gap between chemistry and plant biology and to create international research community in a broad range of fields. We hope that the findings and connections in this symposium will contribute to innovative insights to plant biology, chemistry and overall sciences.
