From root to shoot

As part of National Science Week NIAB staff spent a day in the Downing Street Plant Science marquee at the 2014 Cambridge Science Festival, with over 2,000 members of the general public visiting the exhibits and finding out more about plants and their physiology.

Alongside Cambridge University's Department of Plant Sciences and The Sainsbury Laboratory, NIAB showcased some of the research carried out by colleagues, including work funded by BBSRC and others, but in a way that was easily understandable by all audiences. The stand also included information on the science and practicalities behind agricultural and horticultural crop production as well as the amazing world of plant structure, organisation and pattern formation.
