S1059: Genetics in the Grocery Store in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
What do vaccine-filled tomatoes, pigs that produce environmentally friendly waste, and crops that can defend themselves better against pests have in common? They are all being developed by scientists hoping to improve agriculture. Come learn and discuss how molecular biology is changing the food we eat.

S634: Making Spare Parts: Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Some lesser-evolved organisms have the ability to regenerate parts of their bodies. Starfish can grow new arms, lizards can grow new tails, and tarantellas can regenerate their legs. Why then can’t highly evolved humans do the same? Join us to learn a little about stem cells and how exciting new advances in stem cells are starting to change the way we think about regenerative medicine.
