About the meeting
During the meeting we ask every PhD-student or Postdoc working on the BioRange project to give a short 15-minute update about their project.
To be able to plan every update in the programme, please send us the title of your presentation by e-mail before October 1st, 2012. Registration for the meeting is necessary for practical reasons.
You can register via the registration form.
A final programme will be send to you by e-mail in October.
Keynote: Ben Scheres
The keynote speaker at the BioRange Project meeting will be Ben Scheres. Scheres is Chair of Plant Systems Biology at the Wageningen University and won the Spinoza Prize in 2006 for his contribution to the study of plant development. He has been investigating development in Arabidopsis since 1990. His group exploits the root tip as a tractable model for stem cells.The group focuses on mechanisms of pattern formation, cell division and cell polarity in plants, aiming to connect these intertwined processes and provide an explanation for maintenance and specialization of stem cell groups in plant growth regions.
