Meeting on Plant-Microbe Interactions
Departamento de Biologia, Escola de Ciências, Campus de Gualtar entre quarta-feira, 12-10-2011 e sexta-feira, 14-10-2011
Plants interact with a multitude of microorganisms which can promote either beneficial or harmful effects. This meeting is organized within the framework of the Joint Doctoral Programme in Biology of Plants & - BioPlant MAP and covers distinct aspects of plant-microbe interactions, such as nodulation, mycorrhization and plant pathogenesis. Researchers are invited to present their work as short oral communications.
