Congratulations, Nikolaj!

A great story from the lab of Katharina Markmann (Tübingen, Germany) was just published in Science this week. Nikolaj Abel, PhD student in our team and co-author on the paper, contributed experiments as an MSc student to this work, where they demonstrate that miR2111 regulates the symbiotic repressor TOO MUCH LOVE. It functions as a hub during ‘autoregulation’, a pathway that balances the number and success of rhizobial infections in correspondence to the nitrogen status of the plant. Congratulations to Nikolaj and the rest of the team!
