From MSU Today on Impact Radio: Ken Keegstra is MSU University Distinguished Professor of plant biology, biochemistry and molecular biology. And he’s the executive director of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center, one of three major new U.S. Department of Energy research centers funded with $125 million over five years. MSU will use approximately $50 million for basic science research aimed at solving some of the most complex problems in converting natural elements to energy.
Keegstra talks about the role he and his MSU colleagues will play in this exciting new venture. He tells us how energy is derived from plants and gives his views on the food versus fuel debate.
