The annual DuPont Plant Sciences Symposium was held at the North West University in Potchefstroom on the 18th of October. The theme of the symposium was “Grain production under stress conditions in Sub-Saharan Africa.”

Prof. Dave Berger, leader of the Molecular Plant-Pathogen Interactions (MPPI) research group in FABI, gave an oral presentation entitled: “Systems genetics - exploring stress responses in crops.” 

Two fabians walked away with poster prizes! Magdeleen Cilliers won third best poster presentation and Miekie Human won second best poster presentation. Well done to both of you!
