Revolutionary Life Sciences Innovations are Born in Vilnius

Vilnius is celebrating the exciting discoveries in the life sciences that have been made by prominent local scientists with a funky new DNA sculpture made by artist Eglė Žvirblytė. The colourful sculpture was recently installed near Vilnius University’s Life Sciences Centre as a tribute to the city’s scientists, including Prof. Virginijus Šikšnys, who has made significant contributions to the Nobel Prize-worthy gene scissors CRISPR-Cas9 technology.

Spring is the time of flowering, whatever that flower may be.

Amorphophallus konjac, popularly known as “corpse flower”, bloomed in the LSC greenhouse last week. For the first few days, the flower fully justified its name, so it spent time on the balcony, but now the aroma is already very subdued, so this infrequently blooming exotic flower can be seen individually in the Western building of LSC, on the 4th floor, near laboratory V433.
