How ‘human bees’, biotechnologists and Gates Foundation are rescuing the African cassava staple – Genetic Literacy Project

In the developed world, most people eat the root vegetable cassava only in tapioca pudding or bubble tea. But in sub-Saharan Africa, its the primary staple for half a billion people and is the continents most popular crop.It has gained prominence due to its tolerance to extreme weather conditions, making it a reliable food security crop. But its future is in danger Continue reading

In Genetic Drift, mutant humans are the answer to surviving extreme … – Straight.com

Picture this: The year is 2167, and climate change has caused temperatures to rise to a level so high that the human race can longer sustain itself. That’s part of the premise behindGenetic Drift,an immersive theatre production produced by Boca del Lupo and created by Jesse Richardson-award winning Pi Theatre. Built on the speculative fiction concept introduced by Boca del Lupo and the Performance Corporation’s Expedition Series,Genetic Driftanswers the question, “how will climate change affect the world 150 years in the future?” Pi Theatre’s artistic director, Richard Wolfe, was tasked with coming up with an answer to that question Continue reading
