Submitted by the Event Organizer
The biological effects of the Deepwater Horizon blowout on the Gulf of Mexico are unknown, due not only to the magnitude of oil, but also oil dispersant released.
Dr. Terry Hazen has studied the effect of the spill on petroleum-degrading bacteria to understand how they can help mitigate environmental damage. Dr. Hazen is head of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab Department of Ecology and there’ll be time for at least a few questions at the end.
TIME & LOCATION: Doors open 30 min before. Please arrive at least 10 min before start. Seating is first-come, first-servedThe talk takes place in the Genetics and Plant Biology Building, Room 100, on the north-west corner of the UC Berkeley campus.
We also record the talks and post them on our website.
