Determining Functions of Essential Genes

Have you ever wondered how scientists figure out the function of those genes and convert inventory lists into models and blueprints? What does each gene do and how do gene products work together to build cells, tissues, and organisms? Dr. Rebecca Green has been working for the past 15 years to decipher the function of essential genes.

The Flower Fields

Mar 15 - May 9, 2021

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.

San Diego Botanic Garden's first annual spring orchid showcase is staged in the Garden’s state-of-the-art, 8,000 square foot, glass-enclosed facility – the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory – which opened last year as a $6.5 million addition to the lush, 37-acre urban oasis. SDBG’s highly awarded Artist-in-Residence, René van Rems, AIFD, serves as Creative Director for the exhibit. Van Rems will design a new display for each of the five weeks, allowing visitors to experience changing flowers and arrangements across multiple visits.
