How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
In June 2011, the Marie Curie initial training network (ITN) WallTraC (the Plant Cell Wall Training Consortium), coordinated by Dr marie-Christine Ralet (Inra Angers-Nantes, France), brought together nine leading academic and private beneficiaries and two associated partners around two strategic objectives: • To develop new tools and concepts to advance knowledge on plant cell walls, • To provide high quality, inter-sectorial and trans-disciplinary training to young research fellows. The consortium has successfully trained 13 young researchers - 11 PhD students and 2 post-doctoral researchers - from all over the world. Together, they expanded knowledge in plant cell walls by exploring a wide range of research fields going from enzymology to food polymer processing, through biochemistry, immunolabelling, bioinformatics, textile processing and crystallography. Throughout the whole project, 50 articles were published in peer-reviewed journals.
