6th RegioPlantScience Meeting

Together with the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, Tübingen, the University of Hohenheim and the University of Ulm the ZMBP has initiated the "RegioPlantScience" research consortium with the goal of more effectively coordinating research and education in the field of plant sciences in the region.

We cordially invite you to participate in the 6th RegioPlantScience Meeting, to be held on October 12th, 2012, at the campus of the University of Tübingen, Germany. The symposium will include seminar and poster sessions.

We look forward to welcoming you to Tübingen!
