SASPP 2021 Online Meeting

Due to Covid-19 situation, our in-person biennial congress of the Southern African Society for Plant Pathology will be postponed to January 2022, but we will have an online event on 20 January 2021 to celebrate the IYPH2020, and to reconnect as a Society after this very disruptive year.

During this event, we will also celebrate the launch of the special issue on plant health of SAJSci and a book on the history of Plant Pathology and the announcement of the Mildenhall Award.

FABI International Seminar Series:

Prof Eva H. Stukenbrock

Please join us for the FABI International Seminar this Thursday (26 November) at 16:00 (GMT+2) presented by Prof Eva H. Stukenbrock

Her talk will be focused on the interspecific hybridization in fungal grass pathogens that shape genome-wide variation. 

Open Plant Pathology is an initiative that supports and promotes the spread of all open, transparent and reproducible practices in the field of plant pathology. We advocate for an open science culture and our teams work to enhance this culture by 1) Offering Workshops in-person or via webinars, 2) Organizing Virtual Seminars for enhancing scientific exchanges, 3) Developing open sources tools and 4) Supporting Editorial Boards of journals to enhance reproducibility.
