Description Successful exchange visit with the University of Washington.
Three publications prepared entirely during the visit (see publications list). Five further publications completed or advanced.
Strategic planning for the next decade of research could not be applied immediately, but the direction developed on this visit is resulting in publications - Kubota et al. Nature Plants 2018; Kinmonth-Schultz et al. in silico Plants 2019.
Exploitation Route Apart from their direct research applications, the papers include an example of alternative dissemination for research data and findings, using preprints and open data dissemination online. This is a growing trend.
