About the Symposium

The Plant Sciences Symposium is an annual event organized by graduate students at the University of Minnesota. The symposium brings together students along with leaders in industry and academia to discuss important plant breeding topics.  Past attendees have represented many public institutions and private companies encompassing a wide range of disciplines including: plant breeding, agronomy, molecular biology, plant pathology, bioinformatics, horticulture, and ecology.

Now in our tenth year, we were the first of many events within the DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia Series. Graciously sponsored by DuPont Pioneer, the series – numbering 14 and growing – involves symposia at universities in 6 countries on 5 continents.
