Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are any living organisms that have their genome artificially manipulated in a laboratory by genetic engineering. GMOs have been a topic of controversy as they have become a norm in our nation’s food supply in the past decade. While many people are veered away by the idea of having a natural food’s DNA changed in a lab, these changes have allowed food to last longer, be resistant to temperature and even have increased nutrients as seen in “golden rice”. This fear of the “unnatural” has caused a movement to require all GMO foods to be labeled in grocery stores. This podcast features horticulturist Greg Bothwell and UW-Madison genetics professor Dr. Christopher Day.

Laila El-Guebaly is a Distinguished Research Professor with the UW-Madison Fusion Technology Institute, which is helping lead nuclear fusion research in the United States. Laila and her colleagues in the FTI collaborate with over 70 national and international fusion research teams with the goal of developing nuclear fusion power plants that can be an environmentally attractive source for energy instead of fossil fuels. Laila has written numerous publications and textbook chapters about different aspects of the nuclear fusion process. In this podcast, we discuss the role of nuclear energy in the United States, nuclear fusion vs. nuclear fission, problems nuclear energy faces as well as Laila's research efforts with the FTI.
