SPS - Saclay Plant Sciences
NUMBER 6 : FEBRUARY 2018
In this letter you will also find information on several highlights of the year 2017: the training course "From gene expression to networks", which was a great success, the “Fête de la Science”, in which SPS has participated for the past 5 years and the Saclay Plant'Innov' event, the annual meeting with new potential private partners. In the same spirit, you will also discover the work carried out within the framework of the "SPInn" SPS2020 project in order to develop SPS partnership.
Finally, we would like to draw your attention to two major SPS events that will take place in 2018 and which we hope many of you will attend: the "International SPS Conference 2018: Plant Sciences for the Future" (July 4-6) and, soon after, the “SPS Summer School 2018: Plant epigenetics and epigenomics” (July 8-13).
Happy reading !
Winning ticket for the “SPS-GSR” project
