Making tulips weather proof

Making tulips weather proof | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it
Warmer winter temperatures can interfere with the development of a flower in a tulip bulb. Fortunately, researchers at Wageningen UR are ahead of this problem. They identified the genes responsible for the development of flowers.
Wilco Ligterink's insight:

A nice movie about some of the research of the chair of Physiology of Flower Bulbs which is affiliated to WSL

Ronny Joosen as nominee for the best PhD thesis cover 2013

Ronny Joosen as nominee for the best PhD thesis cover 2013 | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

Never before has the university produced as many theses as in the last year (or the best part of it). As many as 271 PhD candidates completed a thesis this year and received their PhD for it. Enough choice, then, for the Cover Prize of 2013.

Wilco Ligterink's insight:

You still have 4 days to vote for the best PhD thesis cover of Wageningen. My favorite cover (not completely objective) is at the 4th spot at the moment, so there is still something to improve ;).
