MiCRop seminar series

Since May 2021, MiCRop organises a series of bimonthly MiCRop seminars (online) to train our PhD-students, postdocs and Tenure Trackers. Experts in the field are invited to present their pioneering work in the plant-microbiome interaction. This is an excellent opportunity to provide the team with interactions with experts from outside the consortium.

Upcoming seminar

Prof. Ian Sanders, University of Lausanne, Department of Ecology and Evolution, Bern, Switzerland

Title: Can we use genetic and epigenetic variation in mycorrhizal fungi to increase yields of globally important crops and how does this influence the rhizosphere microbiome?
