Plant Science Research Network: What the Heck is That?  A Discussion Session seeking your feedback  .

Come learn about the Plant Science Research Network, an RCN funded by the National Science Foundation that is dedicated to uniting and integrating the plant research community in order to harness its collective vision and broad expertise in areas such as big data, postgraduate education, and diverse careers/broadening participation in the plant sciences.   Founding members of the PSRN include the Alliance of Crop, Soil and Environmental Science Societies, the American Phytopathological Society, the American Society for Horticultural Science, the Botanical Society of America, the Genetics Society of America and the Council on Undergraduate Research. This discussion section will provide an overview of this important project, the Plant Systems Initiative and solicit input from attendees.  We will specifically be highlighting and seeking feedback on the upcoming PSRN-sponsored workshops on big data,  postgraduate education and diverse careers/broadening participation.   All are encouraged to attend.  The more feedback we receive from our community, the better equipped we will be to engage in the upcoming PSRN meetings and workshops.
