Karl Haro von Mogel, a Ph.D. Candidate in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics at UW-Madison, opens our Living Ethics series with "Shades of Green: The Risks and Benefits of Genetically Engineered Crops." Von Mogel will discuss the scientific perspective on the benefits, and possible dangers, in manipulating the genes of common food crops. In addition to his research on the genetics of sweet corn, he is also studying science communication and is working on several media projects about plant breeding.
