GM Crops in Human History – Cambridge Festival of Science

15 March 2019, 17:30 - 18:30

Room SG1 & SG2, Alison Richard Building, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

Hostility towards genetically modified (GM) crop is an unfolding global drama. This talk will examine the roots of this drama in the history of plant genetics since the rediscovery of Mendel’s Laws, asking how we came to see the plant genome as a series of distinct parts, to be removed, added, or altered at will.

This talk will be presented by Inanna Hamati-Ataya (University of Cambridge) and Matthew Holmes, (University of Cambridge). 

Bookings for this event will be taken by the University of Cambridge Festival of Science team. You can reserve a space online now.
