14th Mar 2016
January often provides motivational difficulties with its seemingly incessant rain and greyness (if you are in the UK at least).
Therefore it’s good to plan ahead and consider the places you can visit to learn about exciting science, and of course have a great time as well. In the UK we are have an excellent selection of plant science-focussed meetings and workshops so take a look at the list below that is most relevant for GARNet readers….. and plan your 2016 travels!!
April is the time for more focussed workshops, these typically have around 100 attendees...
Cambridge, UK: Sainsbury Laboratory Symposium '16: Induced Plant Development.
Registration ends on January 11th. This symposium brings together an excellent selection of international speakers whose work focuses on the cellular basis of determining plant development.

To register interest please email Geraint Parry with the reason why you would like to attend. This small workshop for approx 50 attendees will discuss in detail the challenges of using big data in plant sciences. We have an excellent selection of speakers and encourage anyone interested in this topic to register their interest.
