An online talk from Professor Keith Lindsey FRSB, Durham University

Event outline

How complex organisms generate three-dimensional shape from single cells (the fertilized egg) is an important question in developmental biology. Plants and animals have evolved quite different modes of achieving this, and this talk will explore how they differ, and the selective advantages of plant vs animal growth strategies.

Professor Keith Lindsey FRSB, Durham University, will touch on some of the basic principles of plant development, and briefly look at the kinds of experimental approaches that help us understand growth mechanisms. This should be of interest to anyone interested in plants and developmental biology. There will be ample time following the talk for questions from the audience.
