    Science on Tap!

    A new discussion series for the community led by graduate students in the School of Molecular and Cellular Biology. Hosted by the MCB Graduate Student Association and held at Riggs Beer Company.
    The public is welcome to attend to lean more about what some of the graduate students and the University of Illinois are working on.

    Jennifer Quebedeaux

    PhD student in Plant Biology

    will be speaking on

    Improving Water Use Efficiency: More Crop per Drop

    Plants require water to function, but they also lose a considerable amount of water through their pores. To keep up, 70% of all freshwater used by humans goes towards agriculture, which, in many areas, is unsustainable. This time we’ll discuss how a substantial effort is being made to reduce water use by crops and produce more “crop per drop”.

    This event is open to the public.
