#UKPlantSciPresents Webinars

The spring season of #UKPlantSciPresents begins on January 12th and we have a strong schedule set until the end of April! Each webinar is on Tuesday afternoon at 3pm GMT (or BST)!

Registration is free and webinars will be made freely available soon after the event. Although closed captioning/subtitles are not available for live webinars, after the event a transcription can be made available if requested. Please contact Geraint Parry about this.

The #UKPlantSciPresents webinar series runs through GoToWebinar software, which allows simple presentation with the facility for attendees to ask questions in a chat box. A selection of these questions will be moderated by the webinar chairperson.

This series is supported by GARNet, the Monogram Small Grains Network, Bristol Centre for Agricultural Innovation, NovogeneUK and Arabidopsis Events UK.
