Fascination of Plants Day
The event, called “From Seed to Fruit”, invited the general public to explore the world of plants and algae, including fun hands-on activities for kids and adults.
The idea first came from Dr. Bjoern Hamberger, who had participated in a previous edition at his former lab in Copenhagen. Anne-Sophie Bohrer-Cognon, a post-doc in BMB, quickly joined as the event coordinator, alongside Aparajita Banerjee, also a BMB post-doc, who was the volunteer coordinator.
“We rapidly came up with the general themes to present, from the germination of seeds to the production of specialized metabolites and their uses,” Anne-Sophie said.
