The Donald Danforth Center in St. Louis, Missouri is the largest non-profit plant science research institution in the world. In today's episode, we spoke with Dr. Jim Carrington, who leads the Center in its mission to improve the human condition through plant science. One topic of conversation was the lack of access to technology in third world countries, and how the Danforth Center is working to alleviate this problem. Listen to learn about this and other exciting research with the potential to radically change agriculture.
