Food and Fuel for the 21st Century 2013 Symposium

Check out this coming opportunity to join world-renowned academic scientists, leaders from industry, and state and national policy makers to discuss how biotechnology can address global food and fuel challenges.

Registration is now open for the Food and Fuel for the 21sth Century Symposium April 19-20, 2013. The event will be at the  Hojel Auditorium on the UC San Diego campus in La Jolla, CA.

Building off last year’s symposium launching Food and Fuel for the 21st Century, this year’s event will highlight additional opportunities beyond biofuels for plant and algae biotechnologies to address resource challenges. The symposium will cover the potential of using genetics, genomics, and molecular and synthetic biology to enable increased productivity of photosynthetic organisms and to facilitate the transfer and expansion of these technologies to the commercial sector.

Space is limited so register now!
