Jun.-Prof. Dr. Laura König: Why do we eat what we eat?

Food is a basic human need. In many parts of the world, however, hunger no longer plays the main role in food choices, because food is often available around the clock and in abundance. In her #MensaGoesScience presentation, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Laura König sheds light on how we make food-related decisions, which factors within and outside the individual play a role, and answers the question of why we sometimes eat less healthily than we would like to.

Stadtgespräch Genom Editierung

Prof. Dr. Stephan Clemens: Genome editing - the future of our food?!

A discrete number of crop plants form the indispensable basis of our life. What wheat, rice, and corn, for example, all have in common is that these species are genetically very different from their original wild forms. For a few years now, new methods have been available that allow the targeted modification - i.e. editing - of genes. Prof. Dr. Stephan Clemens will report on the potential of these methods in the May Stadtgespräch (City Talk). The biologist is Chair of Plant Physiology at the University of Bayreuth.
