Orlando de Lange, SoundBio Lab and Ada's present - The Seed of Controversy: GM crops, seed-saving and the future of food

Why are seeds, tiny as they are, the source of so much controversy. Come and hear about the fights to control seeds and the whole of our food production system that have taken place over the last century and how that could change over the coming century.

Speaker: Orlando de Lange, Plant Molecular Biologist at UW and parent to many happy houseplants.

Arriving in Seattle from the UK, by way of Germany, presenter Orlando de Lange now spends his days researching plant immune systems at the University of Washington. By night, weekend, and any other free time he can be found at SoundBio, a community lab space in the University District where he leads a team of intrepid amateur plant scientists (www.sound.bio).
