Jun.-Prof. Dr. Laura König: In the focus of the smartphone lens: Professor examines eating behavior with modern technologies

With the help of an app, Prof. Dr. Laura König is thinking outside the box to research eating behavior: What healthy food is is obvious - the researcher investigates how incentives are created for people to actually eat healthier.

Prof. Dr. Stephan Clemens: Green Genetic Engineering

Around 90 percent of consumers reject it: green genetic engineering. The use of green genetic engineering is still banned in Germany or has too high hurdles to really be approved. But that could change now. In a new study by the EU Commission, the opportunities offered by green genetic engineering are clearly highlighted. It could follow from this that it will soon be easier to practice. Stephan Clemens, Professor of Plant Physiology, explains whether the opportunities or the risks predominate.

Prof. Dr. Stephan Clemens: Nutrition and Food

Agricultural yields must be increased worldwide by at least 50% in the next 30 years - and this must be done in a sustainable way, using fewer resources and less land. In the podcast "Genome Editing - WieWasWozu?" the founding dean of the faculty VII, Prof. Dr. Stephan Clemens, talks about the use of genome editing and its possibilities.

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.

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.
