The GARNet Coordinator Geraint Parry also acts as the science communication manager of the EU COST Action entitled ‘Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH).

A major part of this activity includes supporting training opportunities for early career researchers. These can take the form of Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) and we are currently accepting applications for the 3rd round of STSMs. This call has a deadline of May 31st.

  • STSMs 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;
  • These are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants’ institutions;
  • STSMs must be a minimum of 5 calendar days and a maximum of 90 calendar days;
  • The 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

More information about this STSM can be download here and the general STSM rules can be downloaded here.
