    Science Cafe at the Cambridge Arms.
    Science cafes are informal gatherings in which an expert discusses an interesting science topic – usually one that they’re working on. The goal is to stimulate a lively discussion.

    Our speaker is: Dr Patricia Sanchez-Baracaldo.
    She works at the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol and her main research interest is the Co-evolution of life and the biosphere

    Our topic today is: 

    Chloroplasts are the tiny organelles within plant cells that carry out the process of photosynthesis. Along with another essential organelle – the mitochondria, they are thought to be descended from ancient bacteria. Both, then, are living within animals and plants in a symbiotic relationship.
