Alexis will be giving a talk in Elche (Spain) at the “Plant Growth Biology and Modeling 2011” workshop (September 19 – 21, 2011). The meeting will cover the latest advances in the biology and modeling of leaf and root development. http://pgbm2011.umh.es
Our paper describing the use of light-sheet microscopy for the study of plant growth has been published. The major advantages of this technique are the low amount of light illuminating the sample (and therefore light-induced damages) and its very little invasiveness.
