Genetic engineering and editing allow us to modify plants in various ways. Questions have been raised about the environmental and human-health effects of these technologies to modify the genetic information in crops and foods. What is the history of genetic modification of plants, and what impact might these technologies have on the future of foods?

Our speaker, Dr. Peggy Lemaux, is Cooperative Extension Specialist at UC Berkeley. She also chairs UC’s Agricultural and Natural Resources Biotechnology Workgroup.
