A unique collaborative effort by the De Rybel (VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology) and Saeys (VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research) labs has pioneered the development of single-cell transcriptomics in plants. In doing so, they identified how plants translate indications of low phosphate availability into growth adaptation.
Science and society are not separate entities. Scientific research is embedded in society and culture, which, in turn, are shaped by science. To explore this interaction, VIB has engaged in a collaboration with BOZAR and GLUON, in the context of its Grand Challenges Program (GCP). The aim of this collaboration is that some of the scientists involved in the Grand Challenges projects meet with international artists to explore the interfaces between art and science. This voyage of discovery will ultimately result in a work of art inspired by science.
