The Wellcome Trust Integrated molecular, cellular and translational biology programme combines scientific excellence with a commitment to improving the working environment and transition support for trainees.
This past year Plant Sciences embarked on a major project to develop a 'Genetics Garden' at the Botanic Gardens. The idea behind this effort was to create plots in the Genetics Garden to highlight the importance of plants in our understanding of genetics and the critical contribution of plant variation in selecting and breeding better crops. Establishing the Genetics Garden involved a massive volunteer effort of over 40 people, both from Plant Sciences, the James Hutton Institute and the general public during various outreach activities.
On Saturday, 18th May 2013, the Botanic Garden hosted a day of fun- and plant-filled activities including the hugely popular Botanic Garden Trail, seed sowing to help plant the new Genetics Garden, the famous Raspberry DNA Roadshow, Thermal Imaging and Plant Hammering! In true Scottish form, we all had a great time despite it being the rainiest of the year.
We also had a group of local schoolchildren on a special visit the day before, see photographs below, to start sowing the first seed for the Cereal Diversity Plot in the Genetics Garden.
