MiCRop and its members organise a variety of trainings and discussions on different topics:
Scientific Meetings: The whole MiCRop consortium comes together every two months to discuss relevant topics, procedures, protocols and plans. Chaired by tenure trackers and postdocs of the consortium. These meetings are currently held online, but will alternate between online and on-location in the near future.
Data Analysis discussions: To discuss and answer questions related to data analysis, the data analysis team hosts a meeting every four weeks (online). Depending on the wishes from the researchers, there are also topic-specific meetings organised. Organized by Chrats Melkonian, Fentaw Abegaz, Age Smilde.
PhD Student meeting: To update each other, discuss and give feedback, the MiCRop PhD students come together every four weeks. These meetings are hosted by a different PhD student every meeting. Takes place online and offline.
Journal Clubs: Individual journal clubs organised by the different MiCRop partners. Contact persons are Sébastian Jupitre (UvA), Justin Stewart (VU), Zulema Carracedo Lorenzo (WUR) and Giannis Stringlis (UU).
Solanaceae discussion group: Regular subgroup meeting to discuss and evaluate strategies and approaches regarding Solanaceae.
