Workshop introduction

We are pleased to announce that International Workshop "Unveiling the secret of underground: technologies for visualizing root and rhizosphere" will be held as a hybrid form on November 4th, 2022.

The theme of this workshop is “Prospects for the development of technologies for visualizing plant roots and soil environment”. A total of 11 experts in cutting-edge research on visualization of roots and soil environment (microbiota) from abroad and Japan are scheduled to speak at the workshop.

The organizers decided to hold this workshop as a hybrid form due to the situation of COVID19. Speakers and their associates will participate on-site, while others will participate online.

This workshop is supported by National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) and CREST, Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
