‘QualitEEE’ oats

Quality has always been important when it comes to oats and oat research, and now we should consider oat 'qualitEEE' as well! The 'EEE' stands for 'Engage, Enable, and Evolve'.

From the concrete to the abstract

We have concrete word now that the new postdoc position in Melania Figueroa’s lab at CSIRO in Australia has been approved! The advertisement has been posted here. The successful applicant "will undertake research in preventing losses in oat production due to the impact of oat crown rust disease". The deadline for applications is June 13th.

Oats are good for you, outside and in!

We tend to consider oats as being mainly for food or feed purposes, but they’re good for other things as well – like ingredients for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. You can hear more about that at our next “Speaking of Oats…” (SOO) webinar, which will be held on Tuesday, April 26th, at 11:00 am EDT. Cark Maunsell, from Oat Cosmetics in the UK, will be our speaker, and you can register here.
