This meeting will unite researchers from the plant and animal kingdoms to discuss the common goal of understanding the molecular basis of carbon dioxide detection.

Carbon dioxide is essential for life on earth. It is central to physiological processes including photosynthesis, metabolism, homeostasis, chemosensing and pathogenesis. Given recent and rapid developments in our understanding of mechanisms that underpin carbon dioxide detection in both the plant and animal kingdoms, a new forum must be developed to bring together researchers in these fields.

This forum will identify common themes in carbon dioxide detection across different biological systems and exchange methodologies that can be bought to bear on different biological systems. Furthermore, its members will identify new approaches that can benefit our identification of carbon dioxide detection mechanisms across diverse species. The forum will foster the creation of new scientific community/network that will enhance the pursuit of knowledge in this area and form the foundations for future collaborative publications and funding proposals.

Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
