Open Postdoc Stipend in Comparative Genomics in host-pathogen interactions

Post doc stipend: How do host interactions shape the genomes of plant and insect

Oomycetes belong to a Eukaryotic lineage that is most similar to brown algae,
despite their morphological similarity with fungi. Several oomycetes are
devastating pathogens, including the notorious potato late blight pathogen

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).
