We are delighted to announce the opening of the 5th call for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM) of the COST Action INDEPTH: Impact on Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plants Traits. This round of Short Term Scientific Missions has been extended until August 1st.

Short Term Scientific Missions

  • Are exchange visits between researchers (PhD student, postdoc or permanent staff) from a COST member country involved in INDEPTH, allowing scientists from the home institution to visit an host institution from another COST member country;
  • aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants’ institutions;
  • are of minimum of 5 calendar days and a maximum of 90 calendar days;
  • should support the Action in achieving at least one its specific objectives listed below:
  1. Generate standardized protocols in 3D imaging of the nucleus (WG1), nuclear proteomics (WG2), chromatin domains (WG2), phenotyping during development & under stress conditions (WG3);
  2. Collect plant data sets in 3D imaging of the nucleus (WG1), nuclear proteomics (WG2), chromatin domains (WG2), phenotyping during development & under stress conditions (WG3);
  3. Perform analyses using the collected datasets to predict the nuclear protein interactome (WG4);
  4. Create new application tools such as new softwares (WG1, WG4), new bioinformatic pipelines to predict Protein-Protein Interactions (PPI) (WG4) and periodicity and distribution patterns (WG4);
  5. Promote synergies between model and cultivated plant species; foster the transfer of knowledge between model and cultivated species and creation of intellectual property in image analysis.
