Haseloff Lab Home Page

URL:www.plantsci.cam.ac.uk/Haseloff
  • Nice site organization, beautiful image galleries
  • None

Jim Haseloff, Ph.D., of the University of Cambridge, provides a wide range of resources on his lab’s home page. The site is nicely organized into seven categories: Haseloff lab, synthetic biology, plant systems, imaging, design, construction, and teaching. Highlights of the site include software tools found under the “design” tab, as well as Powerpoint presentations and other learning materials from Dr. Haseloff’s courses. The most aesthetically pleasing aspect of the site is the beautiful collection of confocal microscope images. Galleries can be found under the “images” tab, but one can also click on the yellow photo on the home page to be re-directed to a slideshow of magnificent images. (Who knew that flowers weren’t the prettiest part of the plant?)
