Brassica crops, which include oilseed rape, cabbage, and brussels sprouts, are major components of the UK arable agriculture and horticulture industries. The close relationship between Brassica and Arabidopsis provides exciting opportunities to translate fundamental science to impact by using it to understand and manipulate crop traits.

If you are interested in finding out more about Brassica research and the UK Brassica research community, come to the annual meeting of the UK Brassica Research Community at Rothamsted on 9 May 2013.

A successful UK brassica industry requires fundamental and applied scientists, breeders, and farmers to work together. The UKBRC provides a hub for them to do so. Everyone can catch up at the annual meetings, but for the rest of the year check out the UKBRC website and join the UKBRC mailing list to get news and find resources.

You can register for the event here, and see talks from previous meetings on the UKBRC website. If you currently work with Brassicas and would like to share your research at the meeting, contact Pierre Carion ( to find out more.
