Cellular agriculture provides diverse opportunities for future food production

This presentation will open up how biotechnology can be used for food production. The different elements of cellular agriculture will be defined, including microbial and algal biomass, cultivated meat and plant cell cultures, as well as precision fermentation to produce proteins, lipids and other food ingredients. The opportunities and barriers of cellular agriculture are discussed as part of the presentation.
