IVALSA researchers will carry out guided visits to their in vitro culture laboratory where innovative protocols to quickly restore and propagate agronomic interesting plant species are being developed, and the effects of the different components of the light spectrum on plants growth are being studied. The researchers will also go through the useful techniques for quantifying these effects (gas exchange, spectroscopy and reflection of light by plants)
