Hear the “other” side of the GMO debate, beyond the industry talking points.
Plant Genetic Engineering explained by Allison Wilson, PhD of The Bioscience Resource Project.
If you critique GMOs are you anti-science? If you promote GMOs are you pro-science? Jonathan Latham explains in an interview with Bob Schooler.
2011 Scientific Conference Presentation by Allison Wilson, PhD of The Bioscience Resource Project. In this video Dr. Wilson describes her work on the unintended consequences (also know as unintended effects) of genetic engineering. Unintended consequences (UCs) have important implications for farmers, scientists and regulators. Documented consequences range from loss of pathogen resistance to yield losses to increases in out-crossing. UCs are often ignored by researchers despite their importance, yet understanding their origins has important implications for basic research on genome structure and gene regulation.
