We visited Plant Pathology lab and Plant-Environmental Microbiology lab at Setsunan University.
We ate watermelons that we grow together to get their seeds used for research.
Hiroki is the leader of this activity.
Yoshitaka, Ru, Hiroki, Chjujia joined 2023 IS-MPMI in Providence in USA.
Yoshitaka gave the presentation in a plenary session. Ru and Chujia gave the poster presentation.

Jin C, Inoue Y, Singkaravanit-Ogawa S, Kano A, Keinath AP, Abe A, Terauchi R, Takano Y: Identification of a watermelon resistance gene against Colletotrichum orbiculare by bulked segregant analysis and gene transfer to cucumber
Zhang R, Inoue Y, Ogawa T, Mine A, Mise K, Takano Y: Two homologous transcription factors play critical roles for host specificity of Colletotrichum orbiculare on cucurbits via controlling effector expression
We had Welcome Party for the new members!!
It was so fun! (Actually we have not held this event for 3 years because of CoVID19).
We have published the paper:
Takagi M, Hirata R, Aihara Y, Hayashi Y, Aihara MM, Ando E, Kono MY, Tomiyama M, Kinoshita T, Mine A, Toda Y. Image-based quantification of Arabidopsis thaliana stomatal aperture from leaf images. (2023) Plant Cell Physiology, 20:pcad018
Rikako, congratulations !!!
