SOLD OUT - The Science of Cannabis: The Genetics of Cannabis Breeds

Lecture | February 8 | 6-7:30 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden


Botanical Garden


There is a rich informal taxonomy of Cannabis strains with exotic and evocative names. How do these breeds reflect the genetic relationships among different strains, and how do those genetic relationships reflect the chemical properties of the specific plants? This is critical information for the commercialization of cannabis, and there is an active private sector investigation into the murky genetics of cannabis.

Mowgli Holmes, PhD, is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Phylos Bioscience and a molecular and evolutionary biologist. He has a PhD from Columbia University, where he was a National Research Service Award Fellow.
