Pigheaded Pigweed (Intermission)

  • joram 

Good news! Tegan successfully relocated herself and everything she holds dear to a new country. Bad news is, however, that the move still took too much time for us to properly record a real episode. You’ll have to make do with this little intermission, where Joram reads you a story we published in April this year. It’s about a superweed!… Read more

There is no such thing as ‘the’ arabidopsis genome (intermission)

  • joram 

We’re continuing our break from proper episodes for a little longer.

To quench your thirst for plant science, we have another short story from the blog here on the podcast. This time, Tegan wrote about Arabidopsis ecotypes and Joram reads it to you.

Don’t worry, we will be back with our regular episodes in a few weeks. Until then, check out the blog for weekly stories from the world of plant research.

Cats and Naked Ladies (Intermission)

  • joram 

This week, we have bad news. No new episode from your favourite hosts of the Plants and Pipettes Podcast. Tegan went missing in a mountain of moving boxes several days ago, and Joram has a pacifier permanently attached to his face. So instead, we have this little filler for you.… Read more

You know nothing, RuBisCO.

  • joram 

Sometimes, it’s ok to do a short episode. After all, there is plenty to listen to again on here, so yeah. We talk about RuBisCO research and plants and stuff. It really is like the ones before but different and with other topics. … Read more

We hate bigotry but we love leaves

  • joram 

It’s autumn! We just came back from a trip to Berlin’s botanical garden and record for the first time ever remotely – so forgive us for any technical hiccups. This week, we got a bit lost in a long discussion about the usefulness of committees as safeguards concerning ethical questions and we promise that we’re usually not that angry. … Read more

Free Access to Bonnie Tyler

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.
