Talking Biotech: Israel's Danny Chamovitz on plants adapting to environment, biotech in Israel

It is so wonderful to share the time with Prof. Danny Chamovitz. He’s an accomplished researcher, a successful dean, and leader in Israel’s agricultural research enterprise. He discusses his book, What a Plant Knows and describes plants as beings in tune with their environments, planning to adapt to change on demand. He’ll change your perspective on plants forever. He also talks about his lab’s research and the climate toward biotech in Israel.
