On April 12th the FOR2581 Quantitative Plant Morphodynamics research unit held its second meeting at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding in Cologne. Members (PhD, postdoc & PIs)  had the opportunity to meet and present the first results of their join projects. As it is now a tradition, the meeting started with a guest lecture by Kirsten ten Tusscher who leads the laboratory of  Computational Developmental Biology in Utrecht. The next joint meeting is planned for October 2018 in Heidelberg.
