Live Tweeting Golden Rice – Storified

Hi everyone, Frank N. Foode™ here. I was hanging out, smelling some Tulips in Madison, WI, and none other than Dr. Michael Grusak stopped by from the Baylor College of Medicine to give a seminar on his nutritional research into Golden Rice. I was so excited I ended up live tweeting the whole thing on #mikegrusak! For those who aren’t big on the whole twitter thing – have no fear – I Storified it and added in some pictures and extra links, too. Now a seminar that reached dozens can now be experienced by hundreds, or thousands. (Isn’t technology wonderful?)
So does a genetically engineered variety of rice made by hundreds have the potential to help thousands, or maybe millions? Check this out!

  1. Not long after that, across the Atlantic, another Ph.D. student Matt Moscou, working with Adam Bogdanove at Iowa State University, independently reached a similar conclusion using clever computational analyses of TAL effector-induced expression changes in rice plants.
