we talk about plants and (used to) use pipettes

Joram and the curse of knowledge – gum arabic, homework, artistic AI

It snowed! Well, not that you can see any of that, but we’re excited nonetheless. We’re also excited about this week’s topics: we’re talking about fabulous Acacias in Central Africa, the road towards more accessible science and a lot of homework that other people did for us. 

Acacia senegal or Senegalia senegal, (& Vachellia (Acacia) seyal)  
The ancient trade holding back the Sahara Desert
When we talked about gum like substances: Don’t send Tom Cruise, send three to four Arabidopsis
The Acacia (re)naming debate: Science, sentiment and territorial chauvinism in the acacia name change debate
