HOST OVERVIEW
Kevin Folta: University of Florida plant geneticist Kevin Folta launched Talking Biotech in 2015.    More details

The processes of biotechnology can be a bit of a black box, and that does not help further its understanding or acceptance. The Journey of a Gene is an interactive, multimedia resource that can aid in explaining the process of genetic engineering. This week’s podcast features University of Nebraska-Lincoln agronomist Don Lee, one of the developers of the resource. From teachers to ag producers to extension professionals, this interactive web resource details the process of genetic engineering using the example of solving soybean disease Sudden Death Syndrome. Hosted by Dr. Paul Vincelli (@Pvincell).
