E13561: The Future of Meat? 🐮 🍖 🥩 in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Have you heard of Impossible Burger or Beyond Meat? These are some recently developed plant-based meats that are becoming really popular because they look and taste just like traditional meat. This is exciting because the current agriculture system has a number of problems: ~15% of global emissions, uses a substantial amount of antibiotics, and is very inefficient. Plant-based meats and cultured meats (i.e. meat cells grown in tanks) present a promising solution to feeding the nearly ~10 billion people living on Earth in 2050. This course will explore the science, policy, and culture of these new technologies.
