Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are frequently in the news, but what exactly are these organisms and why are they the subject of so much debate? Dr. Chad Jordan, a professor in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at NC State, will share information on how these organisms are produced, their application in agriculture, and some of the issues surrounding their use.
Dr. Jordan received his BA in Biology from UNC Asheville and his doctorate in Botany from NC State. He is Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor in the department of Plant and Microbial Biology.
