Join us to sample a fresh batch of sourdough bread from the Sourdough Project, and find out what stories a loaf of bread tell us about nature, culture, and the complex history of food.
In this engaging and interdisciplinary talk, Matthew Booker will share the initial results of the Sourdough Project. A global citizen science effort based at North Carolina State University, the project is a long-term effort to map and genetically sequence some of humanity’s many microbial partners: the yeasts and bacteria found in sourdough bread.
