The evolution of Maize is more complex than thought
New evidence reveals that the evolution of Maize in South America is more complex than initially thought, and there was a further geographical area in which partial domestication occurred in the Southwest Amazon - according to an international collaboration of researchers including the School of Life Sciences, and published in the journal Science.
The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Silver Award in 2018.
"Athena SWAN is a central component of our culture and working practice and we continue to champion the development of a science department that provides collegiality and transparency to ensure equal opportunities for all"
Head of School, Professor Lorenzo Frigerio
