Additional Information

Berkeley Lab’s Dr. Thomas Eng uses CRISPR to discover greener methods for creating fuel and everyday petroleum-based materials with the help of “rewired” microbes. UC Berkeley’s Nicholas Karavolias uses CRISPR to generate a type of rice that may be more drought-tolerant, which is relevant in our increasingly hot, dry climate. Join us in learning how CRISPR technology is being leveraged to slow the flow of carbon emissions and combat the daunting implications of climate change on our food systems.
