UK, Germany, Netherlands Give $2.5M for Plant Systems Biology Effort | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers at universities in the UK, Germany, and the Netherlands will use €1.7 million ($2.5 million) to conduct systems biology and informatics-based studies of plant seed germination, according to the University of Freiburg.

The Virtual Seed (vSeed) consortium, which is funded by the three nations' national research organizations, will work to provide a mathematical description of the processes involved in seed germination in two related plants, Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress) and Lepidium satvium (garden cress).
