The Bioscience Resource Project has identified seminal publications for scientists, educators, and others who wish to gain a deeper understanding of (1) the latest scientific understanding in specific areas and (2) how politics impact the ability of science to serve the public interest. Our resource pages on Agriculture, Biotechnology, (Un)healthy food and food systems, Human Genetic Predispositions: the hidden politics of genomic science, and Health and Environment provide content summaries and links to selected articles and websites. The Public Interest Science and Scientists page addresses the impact of scientific assumptions, personal bias, conflicts of interest, and patents on the scientific process. Discussion of these and other important yet controversial scientific issues are often avoided in the scientific community, much to the detriment of society and science itself.
These resource pages are continually updated.
