Plant.ID at Botany 2020
Aug. 3, 2020
Yannick Woudstra and Anne-Sophie Quatela both gave presentations this year at Botany 2020. Anne-Sophie gave a presentation on the results from her pilot study on targeted long read sequencing using herbarium specimens, and Yannick gave a presentation on his first batch of phylogenomic data for the aloes, including a preliminary phylogeny of approximately 200 taxa that show it is possible to obtain reasonable separation between closely related aloes. Both Yannick and Anne-Sophie received interesting questions and compliments. Many congratulations to the both of them!
Due to the Covid-19 situation, the Plant.ID Summer School 3 will be held digitally in September 2020. The meeting consists of two separate events: a project review combined with a supervisory board meeting for everyone (17-18 September) and a training event for the ESRs (21-23 September).
