PBU members Dr. Eduviges Borroto- Fernandez and
Univ.Prof. Dr. Margit Laimer visited the PBGL Seibersdorf to discuss common
research activities in the frame of the coffee project “Development of in vitro mutation/screening
methods to identify disease resistant genotypes of Coffee”. Hosted by Dr. Ivan Ingelbrecht (Head lab) a valuable interaction was made possible with Dr. Norman Warthmann in the field of molecular genetics,
with Dr. Joanna Jankowicz-Cieslak in the field of mutation induction and with
Mag. Florian Goessnitzer in the field of plant tissue culture.
This also offered the opportunity to Dr. Emmanuel Ogwok from the
National Crops Resources Research Institute (NaCRRI), Kampala, Uganda, to visit
the IAEA FAO laboratories during his internship at PBU.
