Integrating environmental developmental cues is a key factor for adjustment and adaptation of plant growth and morphogenesis. In this seminar series we will address such mechanisms at the cellular level, with a particular emphasis on post-translational modifications of proteins, thereby modulating protein distribution, stability and overall functionality.

Previous knowledge expected

This seminar series is intended for advanced Master and PhD students of Life Sciences and Biotechnology with expertise in plant sciences.

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

Participants will familiarize with recent scientific literature and will be able to critically read and evaluate the contents of selected manuscripts. Ultimately, this should lead to the ability to present scientific data in a comprehensive and analytical manner. Improved knowledge of current literature in the field of plant molecular biology.
