7-8th September 2017. We are just back from a fruitful meeting at the MPI-TM premises in Marburg. We had two days of intense exchange, discussion and sharing of results. This time the newly appointed members of the Advisory Board joined us too: Prof. Nir Keren from the Hebrew University, and Prof. Georg Sprenger from the University of Stuttgard. They both gave a valuable feedback to the project! Looking forward to the next meeting in February!
11 September 2017. Selcuk Alsan from MPI-MP gave a talk at the “Global Conference on Plant Science and Molecular Biology” in Valencia, Spain, presenting the latest results from the pathway implementation in E.Coli. More here.
June 20-23, 2017 – Devin Trudeau has presented the poster “A synthetic carbon-neutral photorespiration bypass pathway for improved carbon fixation” at the SEED 2017 conference in Vancouver (Canada). More here.
In July, 9th-14th, our project coordinator, Dr. Arren Bar-Even, gave a talk at the conference “Plant Engineering in the Synthetic Biology Era” in Waterville Valley, USA. Selcuk Aslan has further presented the project at the poster session! More here.
15/06/2017 – Prof. Tobias Erb gave a talk about FutureAgriculture at the Department of Biology of the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). The title is quite catchy “CETCH me if you can: Bringing inorganic carbon into life with synthetic CO2 fixation”.
On the 11th and 12th of May, some doctoral researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiologie and Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiologie met in Marburg for the first Max Planck Conference for Environmental Microbiology: “It MaTer(s)”. One of our students, Marieke Scheffen, took the occasion to present FutureAgriculture! More here.
