Annual Symposium on Advancements in Food, Water and Fuel

The California Center for Algae Biotechnology (CalCAB) is hosting their annual symposium March 10, 2016 at UC San Diego, covering the year’s scientific advancements genetics, synthetic biology, engineering, social science, policy and biomanufacturing in photosynthetic organisms.

For the few of you that aren’t already jazzed by the list of topics, the keynote speaker is Margaret McCormick, the CEO of Matrix Genetics, speaking on her work as the head of strategy, research and operations. Other speakers will cover everything from wastewater reclamation to the intense regulations that constrain the electricity markets.
