Biome Makers hosts webinar with WISH-ROOTS Consortium, Wheat Roots in Soil Health


Join Biome Makers for a free webinar, Wheat Roots in Soil Health, next Wednesday, July 27th at 9 AM (EST) and 3 PM (CET).

In this webinar, you are invited to the discussion about WISH-ROOTS ‘Tuning the wheat root microbiome to improve soil health and optimize rhizosphere nitrogen cycling and availability.’ Find out how WISH-ROOTS is improving the soil with wheat root traits. WISH-ROOTS aims will provide advantageous varieties for farmers that support more sustainable use of land, improving soil microbial biodiversity, N cycling, and structure.

Maria C. Hernandez-Soriano, Postdoctoral researcher at John Innes Centre, and Silvio Salvi, Full Professor in Plant Genetics at the University of Bologna, Italy, join Alberto Acedo, CSO, and Cofounder at Biome Makers, to discuss the WISH-ROOTS mission and how it aligns with the sustainable development goals linked to food security, sustainability, food production, and climate action.

In this webinar, you can learn more about:

  • Identification of root traits that can improve soil structure and optimize (N) cycling.

  • Genetic variation in wheat root morpho-physiological traits on soil health.

  • Developing genetic tools for breeding.

  • Data analysis of rhizosphere soil microbiome.
