On 9th October 2018 the FOR2581 Quantitative Plant Morphodynamics research unit held its 3rd meeting at the Centre for Organismal Studies at the University of Heidelberg. The PIs, PhD students, and postdocs presented the latest results of their joined projects and were able to meet and discuss their research. The next meeting is planned for spring 2019 in Munich.
Over three days (16-18.05), members of the Research Unit learned the basics and advanced features of MorphographX and ilastik two of the workhorses used in the consortium to analyse plant organ development. In additions to hands-on tutorials by Adrian Wolny, Aleksandra Sapala, Sören Strauss and Marion Louveaux, participants could process their own data. To release the pressure: visit of the castle...
