GMO Myths and Truths

Michael Antoniou, Claire Robinson and John Fagan of the not-for-profit Earth Open Source are two scientists and a journalist. They’re not very impressed with genetic modification (GM, also called genetic engineering or GE) as a tool for feeding the world. Conventional breeding and modern biotechnology such as marker-assisted selection (MAS) are more relevant, they say.

These authors show us ‘an evidence-based examination of the claims made for the safety and efficacy of genetically modified crops’ called GMO Myths and Truths.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
