Sweet science: how do plants spin sugars into fibres? Join Paul Dupree from the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge for this fifth talk in the series.

Plants can turn sugars into fibres that give the plants strength and shape. These fibres are important in our food, textiles, paper and buildings. Paul will discuss how recent discoveries reveal how the fibres are made and then woven into wood.

#Free drop in 30 minute talk starting 11am and repeated at 2pm. Our seasonal series of Science on Sundays talks run each month between March — August. They bring the latest discoveries in #plantscience to our visitors in a 30 minute nutshell and are suitable for 12+. The series is curated by the Garden's Director, Professor Beverley Glover.
