Chancellor John Sharp believes that advances in things like genetics and breeding by researchers at Texas A&M will help feed the world.
Texas A&M is already on the leading edge of bio-medical research in vaccine production. But what may very well put Texas A&M in the forefront is what the university was founded on - agriculture.
"I think that we're on a crux of a brand new renaissance of agriculture. It's not your granddaddy's agriculture anymore," says Chancellor John Sharp.
Sharp believes that advances in things like genetics and breeding by researchers at Texas A&M will help feed the world.
"The reason it's happening is a whole bunch of people in the eastern part of the world are no longer eating a bowl of rice a day. They're eating meat, they're eating chicken and they're starting to eat beef and things like that, so agriculture and those things that produce more agriculture are going to be a big huge deal," says Sharp.
