Okay, everybody knows how plants can cope with adverse conditions, especially when it comes to dormant organs just waiting to resprout when spring or whatever environmental trigger lights on, and then “whoot whoot”, I’m here. I’m alive and well. This is a sign of resprouting, or let’s pretend. It’s been far too long this blog’s been dormant. Water in, light on, nutrients duh?

It’s been a long time there wasn’t much shameless self promotion here, so Seeds Aside is back whoot-whooting blatantly with open access science. I know, this isn’t the first time I get published in an OA venue, but this time it’s with a well known and almost historical part of OA. The ONE that turned what is called a science mega-journal (currently publishing over 23,000 papers a year): PLOSONE. (more…)

Title not so say! :)

Request were mostly single words, probably something that changed in search behaviour in recent years (too bad, it was funnier when people typed questions directly and resulting direction was mismatching…):

It’s been a few days (enough to make a week though) that I came back from a conference at Accra (Ghana).

That place was good enough to enjoy both making the best out of meeting scientists, colleagues and probable future collaborators, chatting about important crops (yams!) and plant science (and engineering) and just enjoying it, simply because. I’m for one in love with Africa as a baseline feel, it all started in my early-to-mid tweenies and insect-prone geekery (or whatever this idea might convey, you get it!). And it’s been a long time since I left that continent last time.
