Join PlantLink for Fascination of Plants Day in Lund Botanical gardens, 20 May!

Under the theme “From wild to cultivated” PlantLink invites you to celebrate the 4th Fascination of Plants Day Saturday the 20th of May in the Botanical Gardens in Lund.

Visit our science tent between 10 am and 3 pm, where researchers from SLU Alnarp and Lund University will talk plants and why a better understanding of these our best green friends still is so important. There will also be a chance to taste expected and maybe less expected food from plants.

At the same time there will be the yearly “Botans Våryra” where you can buy garden plants, and have the chance to ask our skilled plant doctors for advice to keep your plants alive.

Snowy visit at MAXIV and ESS!

This year’s annual Copenhagen Plant Science Center (CPSC) and PlantLink joint workshop was hosted by MAXIV and ESS. This was a chance to learn more about the new MaxIV and ESS facilities and to interact with researchers associated to PlantLink or working at MaxIV, ESS and CPSC. 50 plant researchers from around the Öresund strait were welcomed in the morning by the Life Science director of MAXIV, Tomas Lundqvist.

PhD course: Field-omics and remote sensing, 18-22 June 2017 at SLU Alnarp

The recent flurry of technological advancements by, e.g., Next-Generation sequencing (NGS) and mass spectrometry (MS), have enabled genome-scale capturing of biological processes at the molecular level. Rather than being limited to a handful of measured compounds, it is now possible to capture thousands of molecular variables. These techniques are being increasingly used also in the field conditions which is a central part of crop science

"Field-omics and remote sensing - analysis of ‘-omics’ and phenotypic data in field trials and controlled environments" (3 ECTS), 18-22 June 2017 focuses on theoretical and practical aspects when designing experiments to generate ’-omics’ data, proximal and remote sensing. It will cover topics from experimental design, sampling to interpreting the results and finding biologically relevant conclusions. Strategies both in field trials and in controlled environments will be covered.

Schedule        Course syllabus

Teachers: Dan Jacobson (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Kim Esbensen (Aalborg University), Fredrik Levander (Lund University), Kristina Gruden (NIB Slovenia) and Aakash Chawade (SLU Alnarp).
