Master's Programme

The Plant-Microbe Interactions Group participates in the master's programmes:

During your master's programme you have the possibility to work in our group on an interesting research project for your major or minor. We offer a broad diversity of research projects. Depending on your interest you may learn techniques from the disciplines of molecular biology, genetics, phytopathology, microbiology, or microbial ecology. For a tailor-made research project or a MSc writing assignment, please contact any of the principal investigators: Corné Pieterse, Guido Van den Ackerveken, Saskia Van Wees, Ronnie de Jonge, or Roeland Berendsen. You can find their research topics here. At Plant-Microbe Interactions we currently have the following Master Research Projects.
