Lars Hennig, Professor in Genetics at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala (SLU), Sweden, passed away on 17 May 2018, at the early age of 47. Lars was a passionate plant scientist who had a profound knowledge of biology and the determination to address fundamental questions using state-of-the-art methods. His research focused on plant developmental epigenetics, in particular the role of Polycomb group proteins and other chromatin-modifying complexes in modulating plant development and environmental responses. His extensive work is documented in over 100 scientific publications.
