USD Hosts University of Nevada-Reno Plant Biologist
Lim’s lecture was titled, “CAM Biodesign: Engineering CAM into C3 Plants to Improve Photosynthesis and Water-Use Efficiency." He emphasized that with a changing climate, the land available for agriculture will decrease.
“There’s a big push in plant science to develop more efficient plants for agriculture,” he said.
Lim’s research focused on CAM photosynthesis, an adaptation some plants developed to arid and dry environmental conditions. Lim hopes that by engineering CAM photosynthesis into crop plants, agriculture will be able to adapt to a drier climate.
The University of South Dakota hosts weekly science lectures from faculty and researchers from institutions from all over the world. The lectures are generally on Monday and take place in Churchill-Haines Laboratories.
