Enhancing Food security through rice genetic improvement - Pamela Ronald

October 11, 2021 - 10 AM - Institute of Plant Sciences Paris-Saclay (IPS2)

Pamela Ronald
Pamela Ronald (UC Davis, California, USA)

The rapid advance of genetic technologies has provided new tools to generate crops that are resilient to climate change, resistant to disease and vitamin fortified. Professor Pamela Ronald will discuss the development of climate-resilient rice varieties, the genetic basis for rice-microbe interactions and CRISPR-mediated strategies to enhance the nutritional content of rice.
