The Week in Botany
Here’s another collection of the stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. I’ve been putting this together quite late as I wanted to watch the Italian Grand Prix today. It means I haven’t had quite the same amount of time to count the shares and left in more links than usual.
Once again, seeing what other people share has taught me something. This week I’ve learned about R-loops. I also had fun working on the post about Patompong et al‘s work on root development. To be honest, they made it very easy by making it very clear in the article’s introduction why I should care.
Next week looks like it will be busier as universities start gearing up for the new academic year. Assuming COVID doesn’t catch me, the next issue of the Week in Botany should be with you at the usual time. Until then, stay safe.
