Event description

Description

150 years ago Gregor Mendel unlocked a key to life and evolution through his study of the traits of peas. While sadly unnoticed in Mendel’s lifetime, his research ignited profound changes in 20th century human health and agriculture.

What is Mendel’s legacy today? What are the ramifications of our ability to change the traits of life?

In celebration of Mendel Day, Genetics Otago is pleased to present this free seminar by Prof. Roger P. Hellens, Professor of Agricultural Biotechnology, Center for Tropical Crop and Biocommodities, Institute for Future Environments, Queensland University of Technology.

We will explore the importance of understanding the genomes behind traits and their ability to change, whether by the hands of nature or humans.

The seminar is at the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum.

Doors open at 6:30pm and the seminar begins at 7pm. Genetics Otago would love to see you there!
