Last fall Elara and I had the opportunity to travel to Colorado and go to CSU in Ft. Collins. There we met up with Professor Frank Dayan who teaches and studies Plant Physiology, Biochemistry, Mode of Action, and Biosynthesis. He had a 20-year career as a research plant physiologist for the USDA-ARS, before coming to Colorado State University. He and the team at the weed lab (no not that kind of weed) are a fascinating bunch, who love what they do. So, please enjoy our conversation with Frank Dayan and what you can learn from studying weeds.
