Interesting session during SEB meeting: Seed biology: From laboratory to field

Interesting session during SEB meeting: Seed biology: From laboratory to field | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it

This is a two day special session on Seed Biology at The Society for
Experimental Biology’s annual meeting.  This session will bring together leading researchers in the field of seed biology.
Scientific sessions will be linked with the practical application of this
research into an industrially relevant context. Industry partners will also participate in this session exploring the full spectrum of seed research, from laboratory to field


Including a presentation by Leónie Bentsink

TED talk from our collaborator Jill Farrant: How we can make crops survive without water - TEDGlobal Geneva

TED talk from our collaborator Jill Farrant: How we can make crops survive without water - TEDGlobal Geneva | Wageningen Seed Lab | Scoop.it
As the world's population grows and the effects of climate change come into sharper relief, we'll have to feed more people using less arable land. Molecular biologist Jill Farrant studies a rare phenomenon that may help: "resurrection plants" -- super-resilient plants that seemingly come back from the dead. Could they hold promise for growing food in our coming hotter, drier world?
