ICAR 2012 - Another exciting workshop on networks and root development!
Greetings ICAR Attendees,
We want to inform you about a workshop that will be held at the meeting on
Friday July 6th from 4:30 to 6:00 pm in Gartensaal. The workshop title
is: “Complicated Simplicity: Regulatory Networks in Root Development”.
Talks will focus on regulatory networks that underlie root development at a
variety of scales. Chosen talks demonstrate the complex gene regulatory
network architecture regulating growth at the cell type-specific level, in
response to the environment, and the use of quantitative phenotyping and
quantitative genomics to identify loci that regulate intra-specific and
inter-specific variation in root development.
Seminar speakers and their titles are also listed below. A poster is also
We hope to see you there!
