An international training course on the in vitro culture of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on excised roots (root-organ culture techniques) and autotrophic plants will be organised at the laboratory of mycology hosting BCCM/MUCL. The trainees will have the opportunity to manipulate the organisms (i.e. roots, whole plants and fungi) during each phase of the establishment of an in vitro culture. Postdocs, PhD students and technicians from the Center of Study on AM Monoxenics and the Glomeromycota in vitro collection will be on hand to help the trainees. The training is limited to 12 participants.
Location: Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium
Dates: 13 - 18 May 2018
