January Meeting

CRISPR Technology: Genome Editing for Agriculture

with Susan Jenkins, Ph.D., Managing Director, Innovative Genomics Institute, UC Berkeley
Monday, January 21, 2019 – 7:00 pm
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco

Crops around the world face ongoing threats of biotic and abiotic stresses, which are only being exacerbated by climate change. The challenges to supply adequate and safe food over the next several decades, at a time when the global population will reach ten billion, are real. To address these issues we are exploring the potential for genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR, to provide solutions in agriculture to sustainably ensure food security in ways that are socially and environmentally responsible.

February Meeting

“So Many plants, so little time!”

Monday, February 18, 2019 – 7:00 pm
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco

We had a great time last year, and we plan to do it again this year: a full meeting of plant display and discussion only this time in February. Last year’s meeting was a wonderful round table discussion and major learning experience from our members. For the colder parts of the Bay Area, February is the beginning of Spring—lots of South African and Australian plants are blooming. If you have a special plant or a few that you would like to discuss with the group come to our February meeting and bring it along. It could be a cutting or a beautifully grown specimen, or something you are having trouble growing. This is a meeting for everyone to learn.
