The SPS Summer School 2018 is a one-week programme for outstanding and enthusiastic Master's and PhD students, as well as young post-docs, who want to acquire excellent training offered by leading scientists in plant epigenetics.

It has a clearly defined and unique profile that will provide you with interdisciplinary education in the following fields:

    Plant epigenetics
    Plant developmental biology
    Plant RNA biology
    Plant chromatin biology
    Bioinformatics

The Summer School will bring together about 25 participants from all over the world and offer them the chance to receive scientific training in an international and rather informal atmosphere, facilitating exchanges.
