SLCU is pleased to announce that Group Leader Alexander Jones has been awarded the Tansley Medal for Excellence in Plant Science. The New Phytologist Tansley Medal is awarded annually in recognition of an outstanding contribution to research by an individual in the early stages of their career. As part of the award, Dr Jones has authored a review which has been published this week in the New Phytologist and can be found here. The review includes a discussion of Dr Jones’ pioneering work to track the synthesis and movement of plant hormones in real time in living plants.

Noisy gene atlas to help reveal how plants ‘hedge their bets’ in race for survival

Jan 24, 2019

As parents of identical twins will tell you, they are never actually identical, even though they have the same genes. This is also true in the plant world. Now, new research by Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University (SLCU) is helping to explain why ‘twin’ plants, with identical genes, grown in identical environments continue to display unique characteristics all of their own.

How trees and turnips grow fatter – researchers unlock the secrets of radial growth

Jan 09, 2019

Plant science researchers from SLCU and the University of Helsinki have identified key regulatory networks controlling how plants grow ‘outwards’, which could help us to grow trees to be more efficient carbon sinks and increase vegetable crop yields.

SLCU helps reveal another layer in the strigolactone signalling pathway

Nov 23, 2018

An interdisciplinary collaboration between structural biologists and plant scientists has revealed another layer in the signalling pathway of strigolactone – a plant hormone that plays a key role in shoot branching and other plant development processes.
