Future Food: Eco-Friendly GMOs
Thursday, April 9, 2015
Eaton 201

Professor Pickett will present on the controversial topic of genetically modified crops as a tool to increase sustainability in our food production systems by moving away from the traditional use of wide-spectrum pesticides to more precise control through compounds targeted against specific pests. He conducted pioneering work in wheat, creating plants that emit odors that repel target pests and attract their predators. After his lecture, there will be a one-on-one conversation between Prof. Pickett and Professor Tim Griffin from the Friedman School of Nutrition.
