Organised by:


London, UK

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


With a burgeoning population, the world is struggling to grow crops and supply food at the necessary rate. To meet this need, crops need environmental resilience and increased yields, which can be provided with the use of genomics – an interdisciplinary science focused on studying how editing the structure of an organism’s genomes can control its characteristics.

During his Public Evening Lecture, on Wednesday 28 November 2018, Professor Mike Bevan will discuss how genomic approaches to food production will improve the variety of crops available and make a significant contribution to global food security.
