The GARNet team:
Originally started by our former colleague Charis Cook, this blog is now maintained by Geraint Parry. In particular, look out for the regular ‘Arabidopsis Research Round-up’ – a series of short summaries of newly published Arabidopsis research from UK-based plant scientists. This series is also syndicated to the community news section of the Arabidopsis Information Portal (AIP, or Araport).
