Preparations for the PREPSYS conference in Vienna (1-4 October, 2018) are proceeding well and we have filled the oral presentation programme for the meeting (copy of draft programme is attached).
There is still room at the BFW venue and would urge potential participants to register soon in order to be sure of attending. We are also very keen to have poster presentations which will be available for the whole conference and featured in a mixer session to enable the presenters to describe their work and discuss the findings. Details for registration and submission of posters are in the attached circular; essentially, please provide a title and short abstract along with your registration details by 14 September.
We look forward to a stimulating conference and to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Vienna.

We have a PhD opportunity available: 'Foliar pathogens of pine: are there common triggers for resistance?’. We’d be grateful if you can bring this opportunity to the attention of any good students you know of who are looking for a PhD position.
The project involves a collaboration between Massey University and Scion. It will include bioinformatic analyses to find common invasion patterns in three foliar pine pathogens (2 fungal and 1 oomycete), screening for avirulence and virulence functions using both Nicotiana spp. and pine (using a screening system developed in our lab as part of a previous Massey-Scion collaborative project) and identification of potential plant immune receptors. The ultimate aim is to identify broad spectrum resistance in pine.
