F1000Prime identifies and recommends important articles in biology and medical research publications. Articles are selected by a peer-nominated global 'Faculty' of the world's leading scientists and clinicians who then rate them and explain their importance.
The main European research groups in this area of biology gathered in the CBGP during the 3er European Workshop on Plant Chromatin (EWPC). The organizers publish now a report on the main topics discussed during the meeting.
On January, 28th 2014, the University ‘Miguel Hernández’, Elche, Spain, invested Professor García Olmedo as Doctor Honoris Causa. Professor García Olmedo, a retired professor of the Technical University of Madrid, was a pioneer of Plant Biotechnology and Genomics in Spain. He promoted inter-institutional relationships which are at the origin of CBGP.
Research conducted at CBGP has improved the productive potential of poplar by increasing its tolerance to environmental stress. We have obtained for the first time poplar lines more tolerant to high temperatures and other stressful situations that affect commercial yields.
Last month, students of the Biotechnology Master from Salamanca visited the CBGP. The Center Director, Prof. García-Arenal, welcomed Prof. Dolores Rodríguez and 24 master students. A series of lectures about some of the main research lines conducted in the Center was given by CBGP researchers. To finalize, visitors had the opportunity to visit CBGP facilities.
