Frontiers and Techniques in Plant Science workshop, July 1-21 at CSHL

The Frontiers and Techniques in Plant Science workshop will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from July 1st to July 21st. José Dinneny, from Stanford University, Niko Geldner, from the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and Julie Law, from the The Salk institute, will be the lead instructors. The workshop will include lectures and seminars with guest speakers, as well as hands-on experiences. There will be an emphasis on recent research results in a variety of plants including Arabidopsis and maize. The seminar series will comprise topics such as plant morphology and anatomy, development, evolution, light and mechanical biology, hormones, small RNAs and epigenetic inheritance, biotic and abiotic interactions, plant biochemistry, crop domestication, and applications addressing current agronomic problems.

Hands on experiences will include:

  • Computational tools and environments for genome assembly
  • Plant imaging and image analysis
  • Design and use of fluorescent sensors
  • Transcriptomics
  • Single cell sequencing
  • Gene network analysis and data visualization tools
  • Mathematical modeling of development and hormone action
  • Purification of cell-type specific nuclei (INTACT)
  • Genome editing
