Talking Biotech: Can biofortified GMO soybeans help tackle vitamin A deficiency?

Monica Schmidt from the University of Arizona has an interest in using technology to make foods that are better for people. Elimination of fungal toxins and enhanced production of key nutrients are two major areas of interest, and she has created lines that clearly are better for human health. She also has an interest in using plants as factories for key proteins and enzymes. Her laboratory’s extensive work is discussed on this week’s podcast. Co-hosted with Cat Cropsey (@CatCropsey).
