The Translation Plant Sciences Center- Discussion Group (TPSC-DG) is a monthly seminar series that brings together the TPSC community to share ideas, learn new techniques, and collaborate with colleagues both within the Translational Plant Sciences Center and beyond.  The TPSC-DG showcases student research and awards, while seeking out opportunities to provide a platform for discussion and collaboration for both graduate students and faculty looking to expand on experiments in their labs.  In addition to the seminar series, the TPSC-DG provides training sessions and workshops on available equipment, techniques, and professional development for both students and faculty.  The TPSC-DG aims to increase the available knowledge and highlight the resources that are available to members of the TPSC community.
