Algae to land plant transition

A meeting in Seville, Spain, on 30 June 2019, will focus on Algal model systems on the rise: Understanding and exploiting the algae to land plant transition. The programme organized by Henrik Buschmann (Osnabrück, Germany) and Andreas Holzinger (Innsbruck, Austria) is full of exciting speakers (see Conference Poster, pdf). They will be discussing the evolutionary novelties that enabled the Charophyte algae to colonize land and change the world forever.
