Centenary of the founding of The Plant Breeding Institute, Cambridge
20 Jun 2012 00:00, the Conference Centre, John Innes Centre, Norwich
The Plant Breeding Institute, Cambridge would have been celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2012. The ground-breaking science, plant breeding technology and a host of new arable crop varieties that came out of PBI formed the back-bone of UK crop research for decades. Many of the former staff are still very much taking an active and vital role in underpinning the plant breeding and plant science in the UK and international scientific community today. To mark the event, we are holding a one day conference with talks, demonstration plots and a historical exhibition at the John Innes Centre, Norwich.
The meeting is free to attend with optional evening buffet supper (cost is £25.00)
