Great advances were presented in our last IPSC meeting
At the beginning of December, the IPSC consortium met for a last time in 2019. The meeting was held at the Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, organised by Jutta Ludwig-Müller. Obviously, all members of the consortium enjoyed some proper German Christmas vibes on both the Striezelmarkt and the traditional Christmas market at the Frauenkirche in Dresden ⛄, but more importantly the project made some considerable progress towards the understanding of the molecular mechanism used by beneficial root endophyte Piriformospora indica triggering plant growth promotion 🌱. Goals for the last remaining experiments have been defined and work packages have been associated to the collaborating labs. 📢 Stay tuned… as fascinating new insight is about to be published in the next year.
