Always keen to pro­mote free stuff – espe­cially when it is about plants – this column is pleased to advise that videos of sev­eral of the present­a­tions from the inaug­ural con­fer­ence of the UK’s fledgling PSF (Plant Science Federation – which meet­ing was covered in a recent series of posts) are now avail­able online. So you can now see and hear some of the UK’s plant sci­ent­ists expound­ing upon such glob­ally rel­ev­ant top­ics as ‘Breeding wheat for sus­tain­able intens­i­fic­a­tion’, ‘Regulation of plant func­tion­ing and yield under cli­matic and edaphic stress’, ‘Temperature sens­ing in plants’, ‘Improving plants for the pro­duc­tion of 2nd gen­er­a­tion bio­fuels’ and ‘Moving bey­ond the potato and tomato gen­ome sequences’. Enjoy…
