Hello and welcome to another podcast episode. We talk about antagonistic patronuseses, thoroughly researched favourite plants and so many fun facts. Like so many, I can’t even count them.
Tegan’s paper: Cromer, L., Jolivet, S., Singh, D. K., Berthier, F., De Winne, N., De Jaeger, G., … Mercier, R. (2019). Patronus is the elusive plant securin, preventing chromosome separation by antagonizing separase. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 201906237. 🔓
Joram’s favourite plant is the bird of paradise plant.
Climate change news: Fungi adapt due to higher temperatures to infect more people. Fun!
Joram’s rant: Legislators figure out that their legislation on CRISPR in Europe is impossible to enforce because genome edited plants look like conventionally bred plants.
Our opening and closing music is Caravana by Phillip Gross
Until next time!
