Jülich Plant Science Seminars (JPSS)

This seminar series is hosted by IBG-2 on a monthly base. Internationally renowned experts from different fields within plant sciences and related disciplines are invited. We are aiming on the integration of regional plant sciences and therefore open JPSS also for external people to participate.

For 2022 seminars check the list below:






A cross-section of capabilities at the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility - From seeds to plants to fields

Dr. Richard Poiré, Dr. Frederike Stock, Dr. Tim Brown - Australian Plant Phenomics Facility / Australian National University


10:00 - 11:00

IBG-2: Plant Sciences, building 06.2, room 406 – large seminar room, 2nd floor

Furthermore, there is the option to add your email to the JPSS mailing list for information about next seminars. We are looking forward to your participation!

Keep in mind that external visitors have to be pre-registered to get access to the Forschungszentrum Jülich campus. For this, contact ibg-2-secretary@fz-juelich.de

For further information, please contact Jablonowski, Nicolai David: n.d.jablonowski@fz-juelich.de
