Library Issues Forum: Dr. Molly Jahn, "Food Security, 21st Century Agricultural Systems and Genomics"
Molly Jahn is a professor in the Laboratory of Genetics and Department of Agronomy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has a distinguished research career in plant genetics, genomics and plant breeding of vegetable crops focusing on molecular genetics of disease resistance and quality traits. Her research groups at UW Madison and Cornell University have produced crop varieties now grown commercially and for subsistence on six continents. She has also worked extensively in developing countries to link crop breeding with improved human nutrition and welfare. In 2011, she was selected to represent the U.S. on a 13-member high-level International Commission for Sustainable Agriculture and Climate Change.
Join us as we welcome Dr. Jahn to the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum to speak to us about sustainable agriculture. A reception will follow. Through a generous sponsorship from AT&T the event is offered free of charge, but reservations are strongly recommended.
