1st European Workshop on Peptide Signaling in Plants (Oslo, Norway)

SCREAM

The first European Plant Peptide Signaling Workshop was held in Univ. Oslo, Norway, organized by Prof. Reidunn Aalen and Dr. Melinka Butenko. Great workshop with Nordic hospitality, great colleagues, and exciting science. Oslo, Nowray harbors 3 of "The Scream" by Edvard Munch, the original version with Keiko above (at Nasjonalgalleriet).

One of our favorite mutants, scream-D, was named after Munch's masterpiece. scream-D makes VERY SCREAMY stomata-only epidermis. For detail, see our Plant Cell (2008) paper!
