Prof. Jonathan Gressel
Co-Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, Board Member Prof. Gressel earned his B.Sc. at Ohio State University and M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has been on the staff of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel since then, except for sabbatical leaves at Purdue, Australian National University, USDA Bio Research Labs Fargo, in England and Iowa State. He is now a professor emeritus in plant sciences at the Weizmann. Prof. Gressel's interest in metabolic controls, especially by anti-metabolites, led to international collaborations using transgenics. He is on the editorial board of six journals in plant/pesticide sciences and is active in international organizations in plant sciences. He is the author of over 300 scientific papers and book chapters and author, co-author, or editor of eight books dealing with these issues. His latest books are Crop Ferality and Volunteerism (2005) and Genetic Glass Ceilings - Transgenics for Crop Biodiversity (2008). His research resulted in his being co-inventor on 12 patent applications at the Weizmann, and on 10 more since co-founding TransAlgae. He is the 2010 recipient of the quadrennially awarded Israel Prize in Agriculture for his work in plant biotechnology.

Adapted from myth submitted by Jonathan Gressel, Weizmann Institute of Science:
Genetically modified or "transgenic" herbicide-resistant crops have become common.

In this lecture, Professor Jonathan Gressel will describe examples showing engineering allergen-free milk substitutes and biofortification, insect and disease resistance, providing resistance against weeds, as well as cultivating marine microalgae in desert ponds and in seawater using industrial carbon dioxide which can provide for the food and fuel needs of the growing population, where the food is better and safer.
About the Speaker Jonathan Gressel is Professor Emeritus of plant and environmental sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, where he has worked since completing his doctorate at the University of Wisconsin in 1962. His expertise in plant biotechnology has led Professor Gressel to conduct important research into establishing concrete solutions for global food insecurity. One facet of Professor Gressel's research focusses on creating mechanisms for weed management in order to protect crops and to combat the evolution of herbicide resistance in weeds. At the same time, the research aims to affect the ability of crops to overcome stress tolerances and to develop resistance to weed-targetting herbicides. This work has led to technological developments in controlling the spread of various crop-damaging weeds, such as striga (witchweed), a parasitic plant which constrains the growth and productivity of staple crops such as maize, sorghum and millet in Africa. In 2010, Professor Gressel was awarded the Israel Prize, the state's highest honour, for his work in agriculture. He is also an Honorary Fellow of the Weed Science Society of America. As well as authoring over 330 scientific papers and 8 books, the most recent being Genetic Glass Ceilings - Transgenics for Crop Biodiversity (2008), he is also editor and associate editor of three scientific journals.
