      2019 P2EP Summer Research Symposium

      RSVP by Wednesday, July 24, 2019 Please join us for the 7th annual Summer Research Symposium, celebrating the Plant Pathways Elucidation Project graduate student leaders. The symposium will feature presentations from our team of PhD students focused on their research program. We will welcome the return of Dr. Eric Jackson, an original visionary of P2EP, who will deliver the Keynote remarks. Jackson is founder and CTO of 25:2 Solutions. Not only does he lead a business that is redefining crop and food development through a custom augmented intelligence system, he has hired three employees who completed the P2EP PhD program. With different areas of expertise, the 25:2 team uses artificial intelligence, genomics, optimized growing environments, 3D-printed drones and cutting edge imaging software to develop agricultural solutions, including the development of nutrient dense crops native to developing regions.  Prior to starting 25:2 Solutions, Jackson worked at General Mills Inc. as a Senior Principal Scientist. He developed various machine learning platforms and artificial intelligence agents for crop development and food design. He was the first scientist to completely domesticate a wild oat species using a novel non-GMO approach. General Mills holds the patent on this oat under Dr. Jackson’s name and is providing the crop as a nutrient dense dietary supplement to the developing world.
