PSI Special: Field Trip to Jülich Forschungszentrum, Tuesday 23 May 2017

Are you interested in plant-soil interactions? Curious about how roots respond to their environment, and what this means for plant growth and plant community interactions? Want to know the latest developments in root phenotyping technologies? If yes, then don’t miss the PSI special- Field Trip to Forschungszentrum Jülich!

Forschungszentrum Jülich has developed a variety of state of the art plant phenotyping platforms. Various techniques, from non-invasive techniques such as Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, to modelling approaches such as OpenSimRoot, are used to quantitatively assess root structure and function in various environments. In this field trip, you will see root and shoot phenotyping in action!
You will also have the opportunity to present your own research in a 10 minute presentation. Three PhDs from our group will get the chance to present their research, so please indicate below if you would like to present.
