A recent paper published in PNAS by Ling Li and Eve Wurtele, in collaboration with Paul Scott, and Yanhai Yin research groups, is now Paper of the Month highlighted by TAIR.This paper presents our first understanding of the mechanism of action of QQS, an "orphan gene" unique to Arabidopsis, and demonstrates the functionality of QQS across species. In Arabidopsis, QQS has been shown to regulate carbon and nitrogen allocation between proteins and carbohydrates in the leaves and seeds.
In September, 2015, IPB will host three career development workshops targeted for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Led by invited guest speakers, our workshops offer great opportunities to learn about curriculum vitae preparation, professional speaking and networking techniques.
