Now open: call for proposals in the ZonMw/NWO Enabling Technologies Hotels programme with possibilities to get funding for (among others) the use of the GERMINATOR | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it
DTL and ZonMw/NWO announce that a second call of the ZonMw programme Enabling Technologies Hotels is now open until January 15, 2015. This programme aspires to give researchers in public-private partnerships (the ‘guests’) access to high-end infrastructures within public research organisations…
Wilco Ligterink's insight:

If you are interested in doing high-througput germination assays, you can write a project for max 30 k€. Also many other technologies are available within this programme

Third Dutch Seed Symposium: 7th of October in Wageningen

Third Dutch Seed Symposium: 7th of October in Wageningen | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

On the 7th of October 2014 the Third Dutch Seed Symposium will be held in Wageningen. The agenda for this day is promising. If you really want to know what’s going on in seed research, or if you want to meet other people who work on the same subjects as you do: come and visit the 3rd Dutch Seed Symposium!

 

The Second Dutch Seed Symposium, in 2013, has been visited by more than 75 professionals in seed business and seed research.

 

Participation is open for members and non members of Plantum, but you have to register yourself before 26th of September. For participating an entrance fee of €100,- p.p., including lunch and drinks afterwards, will be charged with a maximum of €500,- per company for 5 or more participants of one company

Physiological and biochemical responses of Ricinus communis seedlings to different temperatures: a metabolomics approach

 

Paulo Roberto Ribeiro, Luzimar Gonzaga Fernandez, Renato Delmondez de Castro, Wilco Ligterink and Henk W M Hilhorst.

Compared with major crops, growth and development of Ricinus communis is still poorly understood. A better understanding of the biochemical and physiological aspects of germination and seedling growth is crucial for the breeding of high yielding varieties adapted to various growing environments. In this context, we analysed the effect of temperature on growth of young R. communis seedlings and we measured primary and secondary metabolites in roots and cotyledons. Three genotypes, recommended to small family farms as cash crop, were used in this study.

Course on Seed Biology, Production and Quality at UC Davis

Course on Seed Biology, Production and Quality at UC Davis | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

Delivering improved varieties and crop protection through high quality seed is a vital component of modern agricultural production systems. It is critical that seed producers have an understanding of the biological factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of seed health, vigor and viability, and how those qualities are measured. This course presents the scientific background for production, handling, storage and quality control procedures in the seed industry. It updates participants on new information in these topics, including seed pathology and seed enhancement. The course targets professionals in the seed industry, new employees, consultants, and seed producers to extend and update their knowledge.
