Link to Science of Sourdough webinar from Knowable Magazine
Knowable Magazine sponsored a one-hour on-line Zoom session last week that brought together researchers from North Carolina State University and from Puratos, a baking consulting company in Belgium. The information covered was interesting though an hour is a little short to go into much depth. NC State ( specifically Rob Dunn's Lab) has done a lot of work on genetic characterization of the microbes of sourdough, while Puratos maintains a large library of sourdough cultures.
For those who would like to watch the webinar, THIS LINK will take you to a re-play site where you can repeat sections as many times as you need to in order to understand what is occasionally covered by both a mask and an accent.
The transcript is available at the following link and reposted in a new comment below.
