Regulatory Oxylipins
An International Meeting

Oxylipins, from plants and other organisms, form a constantly growing group of signalling molecules that comprise oxygenated fatty acids and their metabolites. The most renowned regulatory oxylipins are undoubtedly the jasmonates, which, following their discovery in the 1960s, became recognized as regulators of defence, floral organ development and fertility, as growth inhibitors and modulators of senescence, and as elicitors of specialized metabolism in numerous plant species. As such, the jasmonates currently belong to an elite group of heavily investigated phytohormones.

Over the last decade, the understanding of biosynthesis, metabolism, and action of regulatory oxylipins has greatly advanced. The ROXY2019 meeting wishes to bring together the international community and leading researchers in the field. Thereby it aims to provide a timely and exciting forum to present and discuss the recent advances and expertise on the study of these molecules that are so crucial for plant growth, development, metabolism, and interaction with the environment.

There will be seven plenary sessions that, through combining lectures from invited speakers and short talks on selected abstracts and posters, will highlight the various aspects involved in Regulatory Oxylipin research. These sessions cover the following major themes: Regulatory oxylipins in emerging model systems and non-plant systems, Biochemistry and structural biology, Control of growth and defence, Control of Metabolism, Reproduction, Jasmonate signalling mechanisms and Long-distance signalling, Ecology.

We look forward to your contributions to make this an exciting conference. See you in Gent!
