Saturday Club 2017 – Plant-parasitic nematodes with Dr. Laura Davies for 9-13 year olds

One session only on Saturday 18th March at 2pm

Explore the hidden world of plant parasites and discover how nematodes that are invisible to the eye can flatten banana plantations and cause carrots to grow legs. We will investigate how molecular biology and genetic engineering can be used to create plants that control parasites in novel ways, such as plants producing proteins that stick to the nematode’s brain, and help ensure we can feed the increasing global population.
