How can food security be ensured today as well as in the future, why is genetic diversity important and what does Big Data have to do with plant health in agriculture? The audience will explore these and other highly topical questions together with researchers and students. In addition to entertaining lectures from the field of biology, the program also includes a science slam and a panel discussion.

Scientific knowledge is not necessary for participation.


Prof. Dr. Martin Parniske, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München: "Transregional Program PlantMicrobe: On a molecular treasure hunt: How we use genetic diversity to find molecular treasures for improved plant health"

Prof. Dr. Eric Kemen, Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen: "A bacterium never comes alone: How microorganisms together make plants sick or protect them from disease"

Dr. Nadia Kamal, Helmholtz Zentrum München: "How can genome research contribute to world nutrition?"

Transregio 356 "Genetic diversity shaping biotic interactions of plants (PlantMicrobe)" is a DFG-funded network for research into interactions between plants and microorganisms. Under the leadership of the Ludwig Maximilian University, the Technical University of Munich and the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen as well as individual working groups from the Helmholtz Zentrum München, the Max Planck Institutes for Biology and for Molecular Plant Physiology and the Leibniz Institute for Plant Biochemistry in Halle and the Leibniz Computing Centre Munich are also involved in the research project.
