As part of the Cambridge Science Festival, Dr Sebastian Schornack will give a talk exploring the dynamic relationship between plants and microbes.  Plants an microbes can be best friends or deadly enemies.  How did these relationships evolve, how do we study them, and how can we exploit them in fields such as plant breeding and biomedicine?  Come to the Sainsbury Laboratory on 10 March to find out.  This event is ticketed; tickets will be available from www.cam.ac.uk/sciencefestival from 10:00, Monday 3 February.
 
SLCU will also be participating in Science on Saturday on 15 March. Come and see us in the Plant Sciences marquee in the Downing Site.
