We are happy to welcome Sooyun Lee and Tilman Jacob to the Designer Glycans lab. Sooyun first joined us for an internship in February to evaluate fluorescent reporters in Pichia pastoris. She will now start her MSc research thesis on secreting proteins from yeast to modify extracellular glycans. Tilman is a first-year MSc student atContinue reading “Two new MSc students join the lab”
Debora Gasperini, Katharina Bürstenbinder and Catalin Voiniciuc are co-organizing the Leibniz Plant Biochemistry Symposium 2021. This annual conference will be focused on Plant Cell Walls this year, and will be held as an online event for the first time. We have an exciting speaker line-up and there will be free registration for participants from aroundContinue reading “Register now for the Leibniz Symposium on Plant Cell Walls”
We are happy to have contributed to a new publication that appeared in Science Advances on the February 10. This study unveils how jasmonate signaling is initiated in the korrigan1 (kor1) cellulose-deficient mutant, and multiple ways in which it can be complemented. The work was lead by Stefan Mielke in Debora Gasperini’s research group at IPBContinue reading “February publication update”
By evaluating different mutant combinations, we discovered that brassica seeds with fewer heteromannan branches are more resistant to salt stress.
Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops on the planet. Here, we investigated the wheat enzymes are responsible for synthesizing mannan, a dietary fiber.
