Our Max Maximus 😉 , prince of TOR has brilliantly defended his Msc thesis entitled “Involvement of Target of Rapamycin (TOR) in
Indole-3-acetic acid-inducible Lateral Root Formation in Arabidopsis thaliana”. Congrats!
Busy week in Turku (Finland) for the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research. Alexis co-organised with Yvonne Stahl a workshop on functional imaging in plants with great talks from Joop Vermeer (Zürich), Guido Grossmann (Heidelberg), Benedicte Desvoye (Madrid) and Léa Rambaud-Lavigne (Lyon).
Amaya’s work on cytsokeleton dynamics during lateral root initiation was awarded the second poster prize! Congratulations!
The lab traveled “en force” to Montpellier last week to attend the always exciting lateral root workshop. Amaya, Béatrice, Marion, Michael & Alexis joined ~60 other lateral root fanatics to discuss their latest results. In addition to great science and discussion, the weather and food were as one can expect from Montpellier: brilliant!
