The Intersection of Plant Science and Baseball, November 2013

In this lecture, Ivan Baxter PhD showcases the cutting-edge science that is ramping up the pace of scientific discovery generating increased biological understanding in a wide range of organisms at a one-of-a kind Plant Phenotyping Facility at the Danforth Plant Science Center. This facility is being used to translate key discoveries in plant science into solutions to problems of food quality and availability in developing regions and to provide regulatory, biosafety and project management services to develop improved crop varieties. With the addition of Chris Correa, a dialogue on the use of statistical analysis and decision support tools to all areas of Baseball Operations in the St. Louis Cardinals organization will be included as well.

This program brings the viewer a series of in-depth discussions from leaders throughout the area on a variety of biotechnical and science subjects.
