Hostility towards genetically modified crops is an unfolding global drama. Dr Inanna Hamati-Ataya and Dr Matthew Holmes examine the roots of this drama in history of plant genetics since the rediscovery of Mendel’s Laws, asking how we came to see the plant genome as a series of distinct parts, to be removed, added or altered at will.

This is a public event and part of the University of Cambridge's 2019 Science Festival.

Booking is required through the Science Festival website; booking opens at 11am on Monday 11 February 2019.
