Internal Symposium for the Master’s Program in Genetic and Molecular Plant Science

1st of June 2021

As part of its networking activities, the Linnean Centre for Plant Biology in Uppsala is organising the first edition of an internal symposium for the Master’s program in Genetic and Molecular Plant Science offered at Uppsala University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Stockholm University.

Students and members of the three host universities are welcome to join this symposium to learn what the MS program offers in its study plan. The event also provides a broad, multi-disciplinary audience for advanced MS students to present a summary of their projects. Principal investigators willing to recruit MS students will briefly describe the research lines where students can participate during their last year in the program.

The event aims at enhancing communication and visibility of the program and should contribute to its consolidation as an inter-institutional effort that opens excellent research opportunities.
