{*} Plant Sulfur Network ©2015 (

"The aim the Plant Sulfur Network is to broaden, to integrate and to strengthening research on 'Managing Sulfur Metabolism in Plants', 'Sustainable Development', 'Global Change and Ecosystems' and 'Food Quality and Safety'. This is be implemented by regular scientific meetings covering different the actual relevant topics of plant sulfur research including workshops focused on post genomic technologies and plant sulfur nutrition, engineering quality, cross-talk of metabolic pathways interacting with sulfur, managing sulfur nutrition, diagnosing sulfur deficiency, sulfur in plants and stress responses, push-pull regulation of sulfur assimilation pathways, (global) regulators of sulfur metabolism, interaction between sulfur and nitrogen metabolism."

{i} 10th JUBILEE PLANT SULFUR WORKSHOP, Goslar, Germany, September 1-4, 2015):

{*} The 10th Jubilee Plant Sulfur Workshop: Fundamental, Environmental and Agricultural Aspects will be held in Hotel Der Achtermann, Goslar, Germany, September 1-4, 2015 and is hosted by Silvia Haneklaus & Ewald Schnug (JKI, Braunschweig), Malcolm J.
