Joyce Maschinski, Center for Plant Conservation

Joyce Maschinski interviews world famous plant cryo-biologists to learn about how cryopreservation of plant cells is imperative for the future of food. Many food crops can’t be preserved using traditional seed preservation methods. For some of these species cryopreservation is the only long term option. Plant researchers from across the globe are working to develop and perfect these cryo-technologies in order to conserve these exceptional species for future generations.
