Spooky time is over – now it’s all about regular boring plants again. Boring? Not on this podcast! It’s pretty much the most amazing plant podcast on this website.
Joram’s paper: Liu, L., Li, C., Teo, Z. W. N., Zhang, B., & Yu, H. (2019). The MCTP-SNARE Complex Regulates Florigen Transport in Arabidopsis. The Plant Cell, 31(10), 2475–2490.
Tegan’s favourite plant is Taxus brevifolia, the pacific yew.
Joram presents the life and work of Shipra Guha-Mukherjee, an Indian botanist working on on plant tissue culture, plant molecular biology, biotechnology and cell molecular biology. Here is the link to her autobiographic article.
In our new segment we discuss cognitive biases. Tegan brings the first one, and it is the IKEA effect. We place a disproportionally high value on something that we have (partly) created.
Our opening and closing music is Caravana by Phillip Gross
Until next time!
