The scientific collaboration with Prof Dr. Lothar Willmitzer has started through Dra. Camila Caldana, (former member of the scientific staff of Prof. Willmitzer´s group at MPIMP, and currently scientific researcher at CTBE) by analyzing the metabolite profiling of sugarcane (root, leaf and culm) during the diurnal cycle. The success of that experiment has prompted the groups at MPIMP and CTBE to extend their collaboration using a systems approach analysis. To this aim the upcoming visit of Prof. Willmtizer will cover the following discussions: 1) obtained results from the sugarcane diurnal experiment and contents of the first manuscript´s draft; 2) strategies for the Systems Biology approaches in sugarcane; and 3) common interest topics for further collaboration projects. In addition, scientific researchers from several Institutes in the São Paulo State (CTBE, Max Planck, INCT, Unicamp e IB-USP) will have the opportunity to discuss with Prof. Willmitzer about possible research projects that strengthen the relationship between the Brazilian Institutes and the Max Planck Institut.
