About the Conference:

Nutrients are a vital source of energy for all living organisms. Plants and microorganisms acquire nutrients from their environments through various biogeochemical (sub) processes and nutrients-acquisition strategies. In addition, plants produce primary and secondary metabolites via different biochemical processes. These metabolites (also known as natural products) are an excellent source to unravel novel drugs. Several currently in use antiviral agents are derived from plants. For instance, the tremendous potential of bio active compounds from plants in inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 has been underlined recently in several reports. This Conference will highlight the biogeochemical processes through which plants adapt to nutrient deficiencies and function under stress conditions in order to acquire essential micro nutrients from the minerals present in soils. Furthermore, the role of plant-derived bio active compounds in the management of viral diseases both in Western and traditional medicines will be discussed.

Sub-theme (s):

1. Nutritional values of plants bio-resources

2. Nutrient acquisition by plants

3. Biogeochemical processes of mineral dissolution

4. Plant based resources against viral diseases

5. Human immunity to viral diseases

6. Phyto-Chemical properties of bio-resources to enhance immunity and control viral diseases
