Genetics & Plant Biology Lawn

Learn about majors and research opportunities while interacting with scientists, professors and students in the Department of Plant & Microbial Biology (PMB). PMB offers two majors for studying biotechnology, bioenergy, computational microbiology and ecology, environmental microbiology, and plant genetics, OR you can design your own major in plant or microbial biology. At this event, you can also explore Cal's Microgarden, home to a diverse collection of algae and fungi used in research labs and classrooms around campus. Take a look at organisms collected over 80 years ago! Ever wonder what dietary supplements such as spirulina actually look and feel like? What about fungi and algae that glow in the dark? Learn all about the algae that take over our aquariums, as well as the fungi that terrorizes the food that we eat and turns flies into fuzz balls! (Moves inside to 104 Genetics & Plant Biology Building in the event of rain.)
