September 9th Davis Science Café Is “All About That Cell-ul-ase”


Will the real Meghan Trainor please stand up? Because you’re about to be shown up at the next Davis Science Café!

“The What and Why of Cellulosic Biofuels and Bioproducts”
Davis Science Café

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015
5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
G Street WunderBar
228 G St, Davis, California 95616
Complimentary soft drinks courtesy UCD Department of Math and Physical Sciences


We ask this because, well, Professor Tina Jeoh’s engineering students at UC Davis performed this musical mashup of “All About That Bass” and Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” earlier this year:

Dr. Jeoh is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, and she studies the unanswered questions that’s holding back the commercialization of cellulosic biomass to fuels and chemicals—a potential path to non-petroleum-based fuels and materials.

Dr. Jeoh will be our guest at the September rendition of the Davis Science Café. Come with your questions on the chemistry of sustainable materials, and the alchemy of turning plant material into new, durable goods and fuels that might power our future!

So invite a friend, and get here early to grab a seat at the G Street Wunderbar. Let’s drink to science!
