16th International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes

16th International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes

University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, 5 – 9 August 2018

This was a fine meeting with many reports of first-rate new research. My own contribution was entitled Two-component redox regulatory control in the origins of oxygen evolution, cyanobacteria, and chloroplasts. Some photos… The first is a remarkable UBC memorial. The last is the location of the banquet, in the Museum of Anthropology.

Bolingey

Late July 2017.

Family holiday in Bolingey, near Perranporth, Cornwall. Fabulous.

You can tell which is the geologist. He or she stands on the beach and, instead of looking out to sea, looks at the cliffs.
