Description: Plant breeding has been employed for thousands of years.  It has provided us with the varieties of delicious and nutritious fruits and vegetables we enjoy today.  It is now being asked to contribute to feeding our growing global population.  In more recent generations, application of science has allowed greater specificity to deliver desired outcome traits, which could be related to protecting the plant or ability of food to meet needs for human health.  The newest addition to the toolbox of modern agriculture and food production is CRISPR.  You may be faced with questions about the different applications of CRISPR in agriculture and for human health.  This webinar will explore the details of how CRISPR is applied in advanced plant breeding and hear how it impacts delivery of food from the perspective of both a scientists and a farmer.
