Genes and Cuisines that Reign Supreme Lecture

I will be participating in a lecture at the Museum of Nature and Science on Wednesday. I will be presenting with Dr. Tom Finger from the Rocky Mountain Taste and Smell Center and Nicole Garneau the curator of Human Health at the Museum. Nicole is going to talk about the genetics about taste. Tom's lab has genetically altered mice to have their receptors removed for bitter, sweet and unami. I always enjoy talking with different researchers about taste. It has helped me discover how different textures and presentations effect taste.
