|GARNet Research Roundup: February 14th 2019|
This GARNet research Roundup includes a broad range of topics and contributing institutions. First is a study from TSL that investigates the molecular basis of Arabidopsis and Brassica responses to white rust disease. Second is work from Warwick that uses Arabidopsis as a tool to test genes involved in the evolution of Flax domestication.
The third paper is work from Cambridge that models the response of the circadian oscillator to... READ MORE ...
The North American Arabidopsis Steering Committee (NAASC) is committed to promoting a global plant sciences community that reflects the true diversity of all its members. To further this mission, the NAASC Diversity and Inclusion Task Force has created the DiversifyPlantSci online resource, a list of plant biologists from under-represented
|GARNet Research Roundup: January 31st 2019|
This edition of the GARNet research roundup has an initial focus on the shoot apical meristem. Firstly a study from the University of Birmingham performs network analysis to define the connections that control the global organisation of this tissue.
Second is the first of a group of papers involving authors from the Sainsbury Lab, Cambridge University and the University of Cambridge. Henrik Jönsson and Henrik Ahl contribute to a study... READ MORE ...
|Hank Bass talks to GARNet|
Hank describes a recent paper published in the Journal of Cell Science entitled ‘Identification and characterization of genes encoding the nuclear envelope LINC complex in the monocot species Zea mays’. This paper also includes fellow INDEPTH member Katja Graumann from Oxford Brookes University.
The post... READ MORE ...
|White Paper from the International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium|
The International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC) has existed since 2010 to facilitate the maintenance, development and evolution of informatics tools that primarily support Arabidopsis researchers.
They have recently published a White paper on the future of Arabidopsis bioinformatics resources.

|Postdoc position in plant genomics at New York University|
We are looking for a postdoc scientist to join Carol Huang’s lab at New York University (https://huanglab.rbind.io) in the heart of Manhattan.
ABOUT THE LAB
Our lab uses both “dry”- and “wet”-lab genomics methods to study gene regulation at the systems level. Specifically, we are interested in understanding how the repertoire of genome and epigenome variations... READ MORE ...
|Multiple Research Associate positions at MSU-DOE Plant Research Lab|
Two research associate, post-doc, positions are available in the Brandizzi lab at the Plant Research Laboratory at Michigan State University. The positions are available immediately and they are for two years with the possibility of an extension depending on availability of funding. The positions focus on the study of the biology of endomembranes in plants. The project will employ molecular and biological approaches to define the function of newly... READ MORE ...
|MS or PhD Positions in Plant Biology|
Graduate research assistant positions (MS or PhD) are available in the Erin Sparks laboratory in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. Research in the Sparks lab revolves around the development and function of aerial roots in maize called brace roots. We use genetics, histology, molecular biology, mechanical testing, image analysis, physiology, phenotyping, and computational modeling to understand:... READ MORE ...
|Postdoc Position - Computational Network Biology in Plants|
The Comparative Network Biology lab (Klaas Vandepoele) of the VIB Center for Plant Systems Biology is looking for a Postdoc Computational Network Biology in Plants.
Our objective is to extract and validate biological knowledge from large-scale experimental data sets using data integration, comparative sequence and expression analysis, and network analysis. In our lab, we combine computational methods with experimental... READ MORE ...
|PhD position in Plant Molecular and Developmental Biology|
A PhD student position is available in the research group of Dr. Tomas Werner at the Institute of Plant Sciences, University of Graz, Austria (https://botanik.uni-graz.at/de/forschung/molecular-plant-physiology). The group is interested in understanding the molecular basis that underlie the biological activity of the plant hormone cytokinin.
The open PhD... READ MORE ...
