Website launches for UK plant-science community

A central resource for news, opportunities and contacts for collaboration across the UK plant science community has launched. PlantSci (www.plantsci.org.uk) contains resources relevant to those studying a wide variety of plant species including crops.

PlantSci was developed by GARNet - a BBSRC-sponsored network set up to support Arabidopsis researchers and the wider plant science community.

Professor Jim Beynon of The University of Warwick said of the launch: "The need to work as part of a collaborative network has never been greater as we can no longer hope to have all expertise in a single organisation. As the community sign up to this resource it will be invaluable tool for building new teams based around complementary skills."

The 'Find a Scientist' feature on PlantSci provides researchers with the opportunity to locate other scientists around the UK with whom they may wish to collaborate.

As well as networking opportunities, the site draws together relevant new information from multiple sources into one convenient portal. This will include research news, latest funding opportunities, upcoming events, recently awarded grants, and information on funding bodies.

PlantSci is free to use and does not require registration.
