Plantae Presents: Doris Wagner and Mathew Lewsey

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic many seminar series and conferences have been canceled or postponed. In response to this, and to make sure plant scientists can continue to communicate their latest work to their peers, The American Society of Plant Biologists launched a virtual seminar series via our online community, Plantae. This is the 6th seminar in this new series, each of which features two speakers (read more). A list of upcoming seminars and recorded videos can be found here.
