24 02 2014

potatoesUnfortunately my sixth offering for Warwickshire Life’s online magazine was published a little too late for National Chip Week (last week!) but never mind! This article looks at the humble spud, and some of the challenges that face British growers. In particular, I highlight some new research published by members of The Sainsbury Laboratory in Norwich, which describes work to develop and trial genetically modified potatoes.

After a little break for Christmas and the New Year, I’ve resumed my fortnightly blogging spot at Warwickshire Life.

This week, I discuss viruses that infect plants, why they are a problem to the horticulture industry, and how scientists at the University of Warwick’s Crop Centre are helping to breed virus-resistant plants.

Read the full article here: Combating Plant Viruses.

I’ve recently rekindled my relationship with Canadian graphic design agency LogoBee – yes, although I am primarily a science writer, I do have a few creative bones in my body too, so I’m really enjoying blogging about logo design again! It’s nice to do something different once in a while!

Here are the links to the posts added to LogoBee in July:
