Invitation to the 3rd international Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium
Plants are masters of adaptation. They almost have always means to defend themselves against pathogens, climate fluctuations, and extreme weather conditions.
Only with their sensitive antennas and emergency call programs have they been able to survive for millions of years. Looking for allies in this battle is part of their survival strategy.
They interact with fungi, bacteria, and insects in order to ward off enemies or to attract the enemies of their enemies. Plant network tactics are the focus of the 3rd Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium in Halle an der Saale.
Seven high-ranking plant experts from Germany and Israel will present their latest research results for discussion at this international symposium on 22 and 23 June 2017 at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry.
Anyone interested, in particular students and young scientists, is cordially invited to this unique gathering of experts in central Germany. Admission is free. Registration is required however because space is limited. Please visit our website for the program and further information for registration.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
