IntroductionResearch Fellow Sabina Leonelli lectures at the John Innes Centre.
Dr Leonelli gave the closing lecture at the John Innes Centre (JIC) History of Genetics conference in September. This one-day conference was part of the centenary celebrations of the JIC. It explored the history of genetics since 1909, when the JIC started its activities under the directorship of William Bateson, the biologist who coined the term ‘genetics’. Dr Leonelli spoke to an audience of biologists and historians on the recent history of research on Arabidopsis, which in the UK was largely instigated through the work of the JIC.
