Meet the WSU Researcher: Michael Neff
Part 2: A new biofuel crop for Washington farmers?
Washington State University botanist Michael Neff discusses how to transform camelina as a possible biofuel crop in Washington.
Neff’s lab works on camelina, an oilseed used for lamps from the Iron Age that can grow on marginal farmland and not compete with food crops.
Neff shows how his work uses transgenic seeds to make camelina a better fuel crop, complete with rose-colored glasses and green LEDs to see which seeds have been changed.
