Enviropigs (photo by Cecil Forsberg)

Few advances in science from the University of Guelph have generated as much interest as the Enviropig,  which has been genetically altered to excrete less phosphorous. You can learn about the Enviropig firsthand from Guelph scientist Cecil Forsberg, who was central to its development, when the News@Noon research information series presents “The Enviropig: The leading edge of genetically enhanced food animals” on Friday, November 12, 2010 from noon – 1 p.m. at One Stone Road (provincial government building) in Guelph. Cecil will be joined by Rich Moccia, the university’s associate vice-president of research. Free admission.
