Learn about new plant breeding technologies on specialty crops at the next Math + Science + X Seminar, 10 to 11 a.m. Feb. 14 in D146.
The event will be presented by Dr. Angel R. Del Valle Echevarria, lead molecular geneticist at the Hawaiʻi Agriculture Research Center (HARC) that is developing transgene-free gene-editing modules on specialty crops.
In addition, he serves as the program coordinator for the Data Driven Agriculture Research and Extension Experience for Undergraduates (REEU) program, which will start at the University of Hawaiʻi-Mānoa this summer for undergraduates interested in learning how computer science connects with biology, using agriculture as a model.
Math + Science + X seminars help to promote fascinating and current STEM topics. Seminars are geared to introduce UH West Oʻahu students to a variety of research and career opportunities.
