This morning, Dr. Giles Oldroyd and Mr. Alan Giles visited our lab. Dr. Giles Oldroyd gave a talk about "Genetic dissection of Nod factor signalling".
Mr. Alan Giles is chair of the Business Development Group of John Innes Centre. Dr. Giles Oldroyd is programme leader of John Innes Centre Disease & Stress Biology. Their work is focused on understanding how legumes perceive these diffusible signals and transduce this information for the activation of developmental processes associated with accommodating these symbionts.
