The last few months have been particularly rich in events organized by or with the SPS LabEx, in all areas ranging from training young scientists to raising the general public awareness, including research, of course, but also promoting innovation.
We can mention for example the Seed Biology Paris Summer School (June 28th–July 3rd), the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR2015, July 5th-9th) and a satellite conference on post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression (PGRP, July 10th-11th) that took place during summer.
