Monsanto on Tuesday will start a new series of lectures on GMOs and other emerging technologies aimed at teaching students how to use them.
In the first installment, the company will teach “next generation” GMOs, the technology that the company developed that is now in widespread use, according to a news release.
The company is launching the series as part of a push to help it address the growing demand for its products and improve its products’ efficiency.
The first episode of the series, titled “Genetically Engineered Foods: An Introduction,” will be delivered in a classroom at the Monsanto Innovation Institute in Omaha, Nebraska, on April 25.
The series will continue through June as Monsanto begins offering its GMO products in grocery stores nationwide.
In its announcement of the launch, Monsanto said it has more than 2.5 million customers worldwide.
While the company said the series will help people understand the technology, it said the lesson will be based on the research and analysis that has been done over the past 15 years.
The series will not be for students.
Monsanto said in the release that it has developed the series for “a very wide audience” including educators, scientists, farmers and consumers.
In a blog post on its website, Monsanto wrote that it is aiming to improve the products and the education.
“While GMOs are widely used in agriculture, there are many challenges to overcome to make them a viable part of the world’s food supply,” Monsanto wrote.
“These include developing standards for the use of GMOs, developing appropriate standards for food safety, and developing an informed public that can make informed decisions about GMOs.”
