to the website of the Research Training Group (RTG) 2498 “Communication and Dynamics of Plant Cell Compartments”, a structured education program that connects Plant Research Groups at the MLU Weinberg-Campus in Halle (Saale) and beyond.
The RTG 2498 is a structured education program, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG. Different departments from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) and Leibniz Institute of Plant Biochemistry (IPB) provides graduate students a stimulating and interdisciplinary scientific environment with access to divers methodological and instrumental competencies.
The research of the RTG 2498 centers on the interplay of selected plant cell compartments, which are key factors defining the properties of plant cells. Communication and dynamic of cell compartments is a central part of the reaction of plants to developmental and environmental changes. Investigating intercompartmental processes and signaling is essential to better understand the entire plant organism.
The RTG 2498 provides a cooperative, interdisciplinary and international community sharing a common research interest. Within the RTG currently 16 internal and associated PhD students are comprehensively supported by 11 RTG Project Leaders and Cooperating Scientists, with different scientific backgrounds ranging from agricultural/nutritional sciences to plant physiology, and from botany to biochemistry and advanced analytics.
One central aspect of the qualification program of the RTG 2498 are Science Trainings and Complementary Activities. PhD Student Seminars, Colloquiums, exclusive meetings with international guests and RTG internal retreats are regularly organized. To additionally offer the PhD students a broad spectrum of elective Trainings the RTG closely collaborates with other PhD programs of the MLU (InGrA, PhD Network, etc.) and IPB (DouCou).
The MLU Weinberg-Campus in Halle (Saale) is home to an exceptionally large number of research groups focusing on plant sciences. The participating institutes have a documented history of joint research.

Great contribution of RTG members Khansa Mekkaoui and Bettina Hause (Project P02) to a recently published Plant Cell article about mitochondrial calcium uniporter (MCU) proteins in Arabidopsis roots – a collaborative work involving reputable plant
What a great success for the two junior scientists: The posters of RTG PhD students Khansa Mekkaoui (P02) and Srijana Raj (P06A) were awared with poster prizes at Botanik-Tagung, International Conference of the German Society
