Plants as multicellular organisms harbour cells and cell groups that are responsible for growth and patterning of the tissue. The stem cells can be part of the embryo, the shoot or root apical meristem or vascular meristems. They can also be part of developing, regenerating or symbiotic organs. Several gene functions and regulatory networks have been identified that orchestrate the stem cell function. The aim of SLS'20 is to synthesize the current knowledge on the architecture, dynamics and diversity underlying plant stem cell systems, based on a variety of experimental and theoretical approaches.
