International Summer School
Plant-based approaches to clean up contaminated environments
Exploring plant-microbe interactions
The identification and proper implementation of suitable technologies for remediation of contaminated sites is a prerequisite for sustainable development.
The International Summer School organized by the Working Groups in “Cell and Molecular Biology” and “Biotechnology and Differentiation” of the Italian Botanical Society intends to provide updated insights in modern approaches of phytoremediation with a major focus on the biological aspects underling plant-microbe interactions, as well as basic knowledge on the modern techniques for the analysis of the structure of endophytic and rhizosphere bacterial and fungal communities.
Nowadays, one of the most concerning issues that the word is facing is environmental contamination which is endangering human health and the ecosystem.
Don’t miss the opportunity to discover the most important advances in the field and update your know-how in these technologies.
