The 29th Annual Interdisciplinary Plant Group symposoum provided a unique international forum to examine challenges and emerging paradigms in studies of plant physiology in the 'omics era. Sessions were organized around four major themes; Carbon, Nutrient Use Efficiency and Quality, Environment, and Development and the recent breakthroughs in these areas. Goals of the symposium included examination of the role of physiology in crop improvement, discussion of unresolved questions in plant physiology and how these fields can be advanced.
