Transmitting Science is one of the partners of the ITN Plant.ID.
Plants are essential for many aspects of our daily lives as they provide food, medicines, and construction materials. However, plants can also cause harm, think of poisonous plants, pollen allergies, adulterants in herbal medicines, or invasive species.
Correct identification of plants is therefore crucial but unfortunately, this is often problematic. Plant.ID wants to address this issue by developing state-of-the-art molecular solutions for a simplified way of identifying plants.
Plant.ID has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 765000.
