Post-translational Modifications (PTMs) act at the core of every biological system. PTM events generate proteoforms that orchestrate cell signalling in almost every biological process. Furthermore, the dynamic nature of PTMs allows organisms to respond to even highly transient changes in the environment with precise fine-tuning.
The SPS Summer School 2022 is a one-week program for outstanding and enthusiastic master and PhD students, as well as post-docs working in plant biology on biological questions related to sugar transport, metabolism and/or signaling. It will provide them with an introduction on several aspects of the molecular and cell biology of sugar metabolism, transport and signaling in relation to global climate changes.
