CBGP (UPM-INIA) will holds on January 30th the first Junior Workshop Frontiers in Plant Biology

Several junior researchers from international institutions of excellence will participate at the Workshop. They will present their scientific advances in different areas of plant biotechnology and genomics and computational biology.


Next January 30th the first Junior Workshop Frontiers in Plant Biology will be held at CBGP (UPM-INIA). This J-Workshop is organised within the framework of the Severo Ochoa (SO) Program and the strategic CBGP-SO action CsBGP (Computational Systems Biology and Genomics Program of the CBGP).
