International training on in vitro culture of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

The annually proposed training will allow the participants to master both the root organ cultivation technique (i.e. the in vitro culture of AM fungi with excised roots) and the autotrophic plant in vitro mycorrhization technique. We also offer a new session on the Ri T-DNA transformation of roots. Post-docs, PhDs and technicians from the mycology team and the Mycotheque of UCLouvain (BCCM/MUCL) will be at your disposal to pass on their knowledge and experience.

The course takes place at UCLouvain in Louvain-la-Neuve and is offered in English.
