The Roots in Salt Lab is on the move: During the transit from Amsterdam to Wageningen we post news from here. Our UvA websites are still operational, find it here: sils.uva.nl/pcb and www.uva.nl/profile/c.s.testerink The WUR site under construction at: www.pph.wur.nl
The WUR delegation of the Roots in Salt group has quickly grown at the start of 2018. We are very happy to welcome three new faces to our group: From left to right these are: Eva van Zelm. PhD student on the topic “Regulation of potassium channels during salt stress” Funded by the ERC Consolidator… Continue reading A fresh/salty start of the new year with three new faces!
Soil salinity is highly detrimental to plants, and affects root growth. In our latest contribution, Julkowska, Koevoets and colleagues examined salt stress-induced changes in Root System Architecture by studying 347 Arabidopsis accessions collected worldwide. The authors measured 17 RSA traits and developed an app allowing interactive exploration of collected data. GWAS identified 100 loci, among which CYP79B2… Continue reading Latest Paper: Genetic components for remodeling roots in salt
