More than twenty senior MCDB students learn about the historic underpinnings of genetic engineering from a scientist who was there at the dawn of the technology. Dr. Goldberg uses a combination of presentations, his own experiences, and the original scientific articles associated with the pioneering technologies to bring the excitement of these early discoveries to life.
The Academy Award-nominated director discussed his movie about GMOs, titled Food Evolution, while Dr. Channapatna Prakash of Tuskegee University provided insight into the science of GMOs. Click the link to learn about the course and other HC70A guest speakers.
