DNA 4 Dinner — Alison Van Eenennaam, UC Davis

\”Please pass me some more DNA\”. It\’s in everything we eat and for some it\’s the center of controversy. Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam has heard it all from the early years of \”GMO\” to the next emerging stages of genetic engineering. It\’s still to be confirmed whether the newer techniques of genetic engineering will even be called GMO, but it will no do doubt have fans and critics. Genetic progress has always been central to food production, but we haven\’t seen anything yet to compare with the new horizons. Some will fret and others will cheer but all will experience the application of these technologies at Dinner time.
