Sulfur High Up in Down Under

18.10.2010
8th International Workshop on Sulfur Metabolism in Higher Plants at The University of Melbourne - Creswick Campus - November 22nd - 27th, 2010

The 8th International Workshop on "Sulfur Metabolism in Plants: Mechanisms and Application to Food Security and Responses to Climate Change" will be held at The University of Melbourne - Creswick Campus (Water Street, Creswick, Victoria 3363, Australia) starting November 22nd - 27th, 2010.

The aim of the Plant Sulfur Workshop series is to broaden, to integrate and to further strengthening research on "Managing Sulfur Metabolism in Plants", "Sustainable Development, Global Change and Ecosystems" and "Food Quality and Safety".

This is implemented by regular scientific meetings covering the actual relevant topics of plant sulfur research including workshops focused on
- post genomic technologies and plant sulfur nutrition,
- engineering quality,
- cross-talk of metabolic pathways interacting with sulfur,
- managing sulfur nutrition,
- diagnosing sulfur deficiency,
- sulfur in plants and stress responses,
- push-pull regulation of sulfur assimilation pathways,
- (global) regulators of sulfur metabolism,
- interaction between sulfur and nitrogen metabolism.
The proceedings have been published in a series and that of the 8th International Workshop will be published by Springer in 2011.

The Institute for Crop and Soil Science of the Julius Kühn-Institute in Braunschweig is specialized on research in the field of sulfur fertilization and yield, quality and health of agricultural crops and medicinal plants. In Creswick, up-to-date research in the field of sulfur and biotic interactions with special view to Sulfur-Induce Resistance (SIR) will be presented for different host/pathogen systems and strategies provided for applied S fertilization practices in different crop systems, which live up to all agronomic aspects.

The workshop is jointly organized by

- Julius Kühn-Institute, Braunschweig, Germany;
- University of Melbourne, Australia,
- University of Groningen, The Netherlands,
- Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand,
- International Plant Nutrition Institute, Horsham, Australia,
- CSIRO Plant Industry, Canberra, Australia,
- Rothamsted Research, Harpenden U.K.,
- Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, Golm, Germany,
- University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany,
- RIKEN Plant Science Center, Yokohama, Japan.
Previous Plant Sulfur Workshops in this series were held in Haren, the Netherlands, 1989; Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, 1992; Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K., 1996; Wengen, Switzerland, 1999; Montpellier, France, 2002; Kisarazu, Chiba, Japan, 2005; Warsaw, Poland, 2008.

Im Focus: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
