Plants and Pipettes

Tegan and Joram explore the world of molecular plant research. How to plants sense their environment? What controls their metabolism? How do they store energy? Come along to an excursion into the very cells of all green things!


episode 103: DNA spikey, enzyme no likey – monitoring H2O2 live, seed inspiration, cheatgrass

Some people say, Joram is too close to still being sick in this episode. Those people are wrong. Joram is just a pretentious stuck up golfer who will never speak again with air freely travelling through his nose. So there’s that. Also, we have plant science for (for real!) and other… stuff. Like a stuffy nose. Bless you.
