We talk quite a bit about airports in the beginning but actually this episode is about CRISPR (yay!), favourite plants (yaaaaaayyy!) and fun stuff (yyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy!). It’s a good episode.

Joram’s paper: Decaestecker, W., Andrade Buono, R., Pfeiffer, M., Vangheluwe, N., Jourquin, J., Karimi, M., … Jacobs, T. B. (2019). CRISPR-TSKO: A Technique for Efficient Mutagenesis in Specific Cell Types, Tissues, or Organs in Arabidopsis. The Plant Cell, tpc.00454.2019.

Tegan’s favourite plant is Gloeomargarita lithophora.

Joram presents the work and life of Enid MacRobbie who pioneered the use of radio tracers to measure fluxes across membranes.
