“Zapping Plants to Improve Agriculture” – Breaking Ground with Miguel Pineros

The Boyce Thompson Institute’s Breaking Ground discussion series is a virtual opportunity to engage with researchers live over Zoom.

One of the fascinating things about plants is that they are stationary organisms. If their environment becomes dangerous, they can’t run or fly away. But plants have evolved many ways of surviving when the environment changes, like if the soil becomes acidic, extremely dry, or there is a heat wave.

Please join BTI adjunct faculty member Miguel Pineros of the USDA as we discuss how he uses electrophysiological techniques to study how transport proteins help plants adapt and survive in harsh environments, and how these findings can improve agriculture.
