After 10 years of successful interdisciplinary research, the special research project SFB Fusarium at BOKU reaches its end. Interested colleagues are cordially invited to attend the closing conference on January 18th, 2019 at IFA Tulln.

The FWF funded special research project SFB Fusarium at BOKU reaches its end after 10 years of successful interdisciplinary research by BOKU investigators (from areas such as fungal and plant molecular biology, analytical chemistry and metabolomics, and resistance breeding) and collaborating partners from TU/Helmholtz Zentrum München (bioinformatics) and University of Vienna (toxicology). Aim of theproject was to employ the rapidly advancing tools of genomics,transcriptomics and metabolomics to get a deeper understanding of themolecular interactions between Fusarium graminearum and host plants, inparticular wheat, with the long-term goal to utilize the knowledgegained for resistance breeding. The progress made in this basic research project will be presented and complemented by presentations of international experts in this field.

Interested colleagues are cordially invited to attend this conference on January 18th, 2019 / 09:00 am (location: IFA Tulln, Peter Ruckenbauer-lecture hall).
Since the number of participants is limited, free registration isrequired asap on a first come, first served basis until capacity is reached.
