Intact Genomics Sponsored The 32nd International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR2022) on June 20-24 in Ireland. The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) is an annual gathering of up to thousand scientists whose primary research organism is the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. This meeting embraces the remarkable contribution that Arabidopsis has made to our understanding of plant science.

Plant science can make big impacts on sustainable agriculture, forestry, environmental conservation, biodiversity protection and climate action, as well as in the production of nutritious food and plant-based non-food products – such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals. Plant scientists contribute to a diverse range of key industries including agriculture, pharmaceuticals, forestry, food and biotechnology.
