In a just published Nature Genetics paper, Wolfgang Busch and his research group at the Gregor Mendel Institute use genome-wide association studies on cellular traits to identify and characterize a new regulator of root development in Arabidopsis.
Ortrun Mittelsten Scheid and Wolfgang Busch have been awarded a joint grant in the WWTF Life Sciences "New Ventures Beyond Established Frontiers" program for their proposal "Quantitative Live Imaging to Determine the Regulatory Impact of Chromatin Dynamics."
The Gregor Mendel Institute's new state-of-the-art supercomputer MENDEL was officially launched today.
We are primarily targeting junior scientists, although exceptional applications at the senior level will be considered. We welcome all applications focusing on basic research with relevance to plant biology, broadly interpreted.
Dr Armin Djamei, new junior group leader at the GMI since Sept 2013, has received a 1.5M Euro ERC Starting Grant for his research into biotrophic pathogens in plants.
