SAPS Train the Trainer

last modified Aug 02, 2013 02:03 PM

The Laboratory was pleased to host the second Train the Trainer event in collaboration with Science and Plants for Schools. Aimed at PGCE biology tutors and others involved in teacher training, Train the Trainer highlighted a wide range of new plant science based practicals and online resources suitable for secondary school use. The delegates spent two days learning the new practicals, exploring plant sciences websites and chatting with Lab researchers about their research.  Sainsbury Lab staff tried their hand at the practicals as well. As with the previous event, the course was very well received, and the Lab looks forward to hosting similar courses in the future.

How to become a giant cell? Fluctuations in a key regulator guide cell size in flower organs.

Mar 06, 2017

A key regulator has been discovered to determine cell size in flowers through random fluctuations. Counterintuitively, this randomness can lead to patterns. This finding helps us to understand how biological patterns are initiated, how shape and size are determined during growth, and may lead to important discoveries improving crop yields.
