PlantEd is organising an online lecture series on genome editing in plants, with many high-profile speakers. The series, which is organised by PlantEd WG1 leaders Dr Goetz Hensel (email@example.com) and Dr Katrijn Van Laere (firstname.lastname@example.org) will continue regularly until the end of 2022 and be organised via Zoom. A separate announcement will be sent out to the PlantEd network before each event, and also updated here on the website and posted on the PlantEd Twitter account (@COST_PlantEd).
