CONGRATULATION

(12/22)

We are pleased to congratulate Dr. Ksenia Trofimov on passing their doctorate and wish her all the best for the future!

Her abstract on "FER-LIKE IRON DEFICIENCY-INDUCED TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR (FIT)" was published on bioRxiv:


NEW PUBLICATION - Co-author Jannik Hornbergs

(12/2022)

A research team led by Prof. Dr. Petra Bauer and Dr. Rumen Ivanov has addressed the issue of regulation of iron balance in plants and the importance for human iron supply via plant food.

The interdisciplinary publication "SEC14-GOLD protein PATELLIN2 binds IRON-REGULATED TRANSPORTER1 linking root iron uptake to vitamin E" has now been published in "Plant Physiology" doi: 10.1093/plphys/kiac563.

Authors: Jannik Hornbergs, Karolin Montag, Jennifer Loschwitz, Inga Mohr, Gereon Poschmann, Anika Schnake, Regina Gratz, Tzvetina Brumbarova, Monique Eutebach, Kalina Angrand, Claudia Fink-Straube, Kai Stühler, Jürgen Zeier, Laura Hartmann, Birgit Strodel, Rumen Ivanov, Petra Bauer

A SMALL PLANT BECOMES A STAR ...

(11/22)

Public debates on climate change and recent environmental disasters such as floods and forest fires have drawn attention to current environmental changes, which include ecosystem transformation, among many other aspects. It is obvious that in such circumstances, biodiversity is at stake.

This "Citizen Science" project aims to involve schoolchildren, students, educational institutions and interested citizens in monitoring wild plants, their characteristics and their distribution. The aim is to observe plants, collect data on habitat of origin, plant phenotypes and distribution, and provide material for genomic DNA and PCR-based genotyping data.

This will raise awareness and understanding of the importance of plants to ecosystem functioning, the various challenges and threats that plants face in the face of rapid anthropogenic change, and, in particular, the role that genetics plays in plant adaptation to these changing environments.

"Arabidopsis thaliana", the Arabidopsis thaliana, is the model plant of molecular biology:

RESEARCH PROJECT "PLANT RESEARCH FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN GARDENING"

(11/22)

As part of the call for proposals "The Civic University in Teaching 2022/2023", a new project has been approved for implementation in the winter semester 2022/23 and the summer semester 2023:

Plant research findings can promote urban gardening and help ensure that regional, high-quality plant-based foods are produced in an ecologically sound manner. In order to share hard-to-access research results with the public, this project brings students in contact with start-ups from the sustainable food sector and hobby gardeners.

Contact: Prof. Dr. Petra Bauer (Institut für Botanik)

Cooperation partner: "keep it grün" - a start-up for natural gardening
