People have grown and harvested plants for food, shelter, energy, clothing, and medicines for millennia, but our newfound ability to comprehend and manipulate plant metabolism and structure opens a cornucopia of new potential uses for Earth’s photosynthetic kingdom. I will highlight how researchers in the Center for Biorenewables are leveraging the amazing powers of plants to create the next generation of advanced biomaterials and bioproducts for the benefit of everyone and the planet we call home, and discuss how you can get involved in our center.
