Power Plants: Kramer lab featured in MSU President's 2016 Report

The video features PhotosynQ, a sophisticated scientific platform that measures plant health and productivity parameters in real time and in dynamic environmental conditions, outside of the lab. The technology is easy to use and inexpensive, making it possible for researchers, farmers, and plant experts around the world to connect and maximize big data for big solutions.

You can access the rest of the MSU President's 2016 Report, which includes videos and 360-degree, interactive environments that provide a closer look at the work the selected participants - including Mona Hanna-Attisha and Tom Izzo - are doing.
