Webinar - Vegetable Diversity


'Vegetable variety – how diversity in our crops keeps food on our plates'
Dr Charlotte Allender and Dr Graham Teakle, School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick

Wednesday, 24th February - 16:00 - 17:00, MS Teams. Please register below and you will receive a link by email prior to the event to join

Charlotte is Manager of the UK Vegetable Genebank on the Wellesbourne Campus, which maintains several globally significant collections of vegetable crops and related wild species. She is particularly interested in the patterns and nature of the distribution of genetic diversity among crop species and their wild relatives. The Genebank celebrated its 40th Anniversary last year.

Graham's research interests focus on the genetic analysis of crop traits. Much of his work has been on vegetable Brassicas and oilseed rape, but he also works on lettuce, onion and parsnip. The development and curation of genetic resources is a key underpinning component of his work.

Both Charlotte and Graham undertake research on vegetable crop diversity as part of the Vegetable Genetic Improvement Network project which is led by the University of Warwick and funded by Defra.
