The biology of ion and water transport in plants involves specific concepts and methods that are generally not acquired during classical Master and PhD studies. The MISTRAL summer school organized every other year by B&PMP puts emphasis on such concepts and methods since 2012. It generally gathers 15-20 PhD students or post-docs (mostly from abroad) for two weeks of both theoretical and practical training in English, in particular within the various technological platforms of the institute. In addition, MISTRAL includes specific conferences given by 3-4 invited renowned international experts in the field.
