UnDisciplined: The Wetland Ecologist And The Forest Biotechnologist

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about how genes impact plant growth, but from two very different perspectives. 

Steve Strauss studies ways genetic manipulation can make poplar trees grow faster for economic purposes. 

Karin Kettenring studies how gene flow impacts our ability to restore wetlands for environmental purposes. 

Together, we'll talk about genetic engineering, duck gizzards, and hopefully do some problem-solving along the way.
