Plant Biotechnology + Breeding: Online Café: Green Enlightenment
February 26 @ 14:00 - 16:00
Please, join Plant B+B in the inauguration of the Plant B+B Online Café. In this bi-monthly virtual seminar, the scientists partnering in the project will present their work and share their views with us.
In this inaugural webinar, Marc Van Montagu will talk about Science as a fundamental tool to understand life in general and human societies in particular. Observations on cause and effect and mathematical reasoning have helped understand the nonliving world so well that we have called it enlightenment. Until recently, the application of these “laws of nature” to explain the behavior of animals has brought nothing but confusion and anarchy. Understanding molecular and cellular biology, genetics, evolution and ecology gives hope that we can wake up from this nightmare. How important are these reflections for the Plant B+B network?
Let’s learn new things and get in touch with each other while we enjoy a cup of coffee!
Please note, due to Coronavirus outbreak, many of the conferences are either postponed or cancelled.
