[Wolfgang Schmidt] The Yin and Yang of iron in plants and beyond

POST:2019-05-14 Provider: 李慈薇

The 19th edition of at the International Symposium on Iron Nutrition and Interactions in Plants (ISINIP) was hosted by IPMB from July 9 to 13, 2018 at the Academia Sinica campus. The five-day event hosted around 200 scientists from around the world. The meeting covered a diverse array of topics centered around iron nutrition, including but not limited to soil processes, biofortification, transport, signaling, and molecular processes regulating the cellular homeostasis of iron. A review of the meeting summarizing the main findings has recently been published in Plant Cell and Physiology (PCP), one of the main sponsors of the event (https://academic.oup.com/pcp/advance-article-abstract/doi/10.1093/pcp/pcz066/5488000?redirectedFrom=fulltext). A spotlight issue comprising four reviews summarizing the most prominent subjects of the symposium edited by Wolfgang Schmidt will be published  in PCP in due course.
