Advances magazine

Advances is the flagship publication for the John Innes Centre.

With each new edition we will shine a spotlight on the wide array of world-leading research at the institute and our links with industrial partners.

There is lots to choose from whether it is; discovering the next antibiotic, making food more nutritious or adapting crops to a changing climate, we continue to combine scientific excellence with strategic relevance to address global challenges.
