CANCELLED: New biology�new practicals REPEATED - T65

Friday 6th January 2017

10:00 - 11:00

Speakers

  1. Mary Philpott - CLEAPSS

Biology is advancing very rapidly and the new understanding is increasingly seen in everyday life. Each iteration of GCSE or A level therefore includes new aspects of molecular biology, physiology and ecology, to prompt students to learn the theory.However, students often find the new material difficult to grasp because it is so abstract. This workshop gives ideas for simple hands-on practicals that help students to understand the experimental basis for the modern Biology. As the practicals are investigative, the students can also make some discoveries of their own!!!After all, isn't the 21st Century the �Age of Biology�.

Frontier Science: Impacts of emerging diseases on food production - T81

Friday 6th January 2017

11:00 - 12:00

Speakers

  1. Professor Michael Shaw - School of Agriculture, Policy and Development, University of Reading

Food Security: �Impacts of emerging diseases on food production�Initially, new diseases may cause catastrophic harm to a local area. As time passes, systems and people adapt and the impact is diffuse and passed to end-users as higher costs or reduced choice. Examples from round the world illustrate the general pattern. They also show that emergence of new diseases seems to be quite frequent. The cause may be a change in farming system � especially intensification, chance adaptation of an existing micro-organism, climate change, or - most important � the matching of a pathogen from one part of the world with a crop in another. The challenge is to keep the rate at which new diseases emerge manageable. In this, trade plays a large part, and there are irresoluble contradictions: open and extensive trade provides food security, but it also means more new disease problems. The choice is effectively already made, so we need to build food systems which are resilient to frequent emergence of new diseases.
