Our Relatives, the Plants

October 1, 2017

Stunning similarities between the root of a plant and the human gut could transform how we grow food and counter the onset of chronic diseases through merging the mind of an ecologist with the care of a gardener and the skills of a doctor. Join a fascinating discussion led by BUF member Dave Zeretzky, an amateur scientist who has made a study of the research on microbial life, specifically, how human microbes relate closely to plant microbes. 

Hear about microbiomes and the concept of hologenomes, which challenge our definition of ‘human.’  Bring your curiosity and your questions!

9:15-10:15am, BUF Conference Room
