The Plant Hormone Atlas (pending image)
October 25 - October 26
The Plant Hormone Atlas: An Artistic Perspective of Scientific Data throughout Tomato Plant Development is a self-curated event presented by Hannah Berry and the Cris Argueso Lab, and hosted by Art Lab Fort Collins.
Nearly every aspect in a plant’s life is regulated by plant hormones. Just like in our bodies, these small molecules travel throughout the plant to influence growth, development, and responses to the environment. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), we have measured 6 of the main plant hormone groups in roots and shoots throughout tomato plant development to establish the Hormone Atlas. The Hormone Atlas combines biological illustration with this data and will be used to develop a web-based tool for researchers in search of tissue-specific hormone data. In this exhibit, we aim to showcase scientific developments in plant hormone quantification at Colorado State University through visual data representation and an interactive instillation.
Open October 25th and October 26th, 4pm-8pm.
