Course Description

Increasing the number and types of plants is a fundamental part of balancing our effect on the environment. To support the re-greening of our nation and planet, the Green Biome Institute (GBI) at Cal State East Bay is preserving hard-to-reproduce endangered CA plants and profiling the genetics of rare species. This work supports preservation planning, research into plant medicinal, growth trait, and disease resistance, and the reallocation of our flora to preferred environments. We will discuss plant genetics and the current state of the art in genetic profiling. We will review details of today’s techniques for safe genetic modifications and we will look at how genetics can help create more resilient, fast-growing plant life for the benefit of all. (ONLINE)
