SIPS News - read and contribute

The School of Integrative Plant Science News Blog has been created to highlight activities of general interest to SIPS members and to serve as a source of news items about SIPS research, teaching, and outreach for CALS news and other media.  Cross-sectional collaborations are of particular interest as are activities that may be under-represented in CALS publications.  Contact Magdalen Lindeberg, to submit recent research breakthroughs, publications, or other topics potentially suitable for the SIPS News.
