Frankenfoods: Cornerstones of the Next Green Revolution
Audience: Adults
Description: A simple introduction to the idea of genetic engineering, especially as it applies to crops. The presentation is a comparison and contrast of crop domestication, traditional breeding and genetic engineering. Special attention is applied to questions: Which is more precise? What is natural?

The answers are truly surprising! The presentation is based in the hard scientific literature but presented for the general audience. There always is time for questions.
