Manage your soils and grow your business
Tuesday 15th 2005 - Wednesday 16th November 2005
A forward looking "strategic lecture- and discussion-led workshop exploring the impacts of global markets, climate change and current farming practices on the functionality and biodiversity of soils, and air and water quality in arable, livestock and horticultural farming systems.› Click here for more information
The 6th Rothamsted International BioMarket
Monday 7th 2005 - Wednesday 9th November 2005
BioProducts for Food
Now in its sixth year, the BioMarket is a commercial networking event that attracts senior decision makers from industry and academia who are involved in the technology transfer and commercialisation of BioProducts from plant and microbial biotechnology. The event combines a traditional conference format with a full delegate partnering service and is structured to maximise opportunities for delegates to make contact with each other.
The BA Festival of Science
Thursday 8th September 2005
Africa's Rainbow Revolution
Kofi Annan has called for "a uniquely African Green revolution" to end the continent's hunger. Asia's "green revolution" tripled food production, but can't be transplanted directly to Africa , where a wide diversity of crops is grown under many different farming systems. A broad range of challenges need to be addressed-more like a rainbow revolution than a green one-can science help?
Rothamsted Research Association Science Day
Tuesday 7th June 2005
Incorporating sow2succeed and the First Report of the Sustainable Farming and Food Research Priorities Group
Pesticides and the food chain
Tuesday 10th May 2005
Overcoming producer, processor and retailer challenges with technology
The UK food chain is big business - retail and catering sales are almost £100 billion. Quantity, safety and quality are paramount issues to all involved - from input suppliers to consumers. And, like it or not, pesticides remain a vital part of the food production tool kit. From start to finish, science supports the food chain - developing new ways to control pests, preserve quality, ensure safety, and so on.
A Course in Cryo-techniques for Electron Microscopy
Monday 11th 2005 - Friday 15th April 2005
The course will cover applications in plant sciences, microbiology and virology and will be of interest to those with a research or technical background in cell biology or life science, from both academia and industry. Techniques covered will include rapid cooling, freeze substitution, cryo-sectioning, thin film TEM and cryo-transfer and freeze fracture cryo-SEM. The Centre for Bioimaging is equipped with state-of-the-art scanning and transmission electron microscopes.
Monday 21st 2005 - Tuesday 22nd March 2005
Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of Molecular Biology. 15th Annual meeting
Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of annual MASAMB meetings, have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression microarrays. These immense data resources, and the underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research opportunitities for numerate scientists.
