Panel discussion exploring the use of gene editing technologies in agriculture
The "GMO" debate isn't really about GMOs. These crops have become a stand-in for legitimate concerns about our food supply. But shunning GMOs will not solve these issues.
Scientists create pigs that are immune to one of the world's costliest livestock diseases.
Bt corn protects neighboring peppers and green beans, cuts pesticide use.
This is the second in a three-part series making the case that the development of the biotech traits for insect resistance and herbicide tolerance are the most substantial innovations in sustainable agriculture in the last three decades.
Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms.
Monsanto is going beyond GMOs and investing in the gene-editing startup Pairwise. The deal could herald the arrival of the first Crispr produce.
1994 is generally regarded as the first year of genetically modified crop production, the first being the GM Flavr Savr tomato in the US. The crops that will be planted in 2018 represent the 25th year of GM crop production.
Abstract. The first genetically engineered (GE) food crop (tomato) was introduced in 1995, followed by the successful development and commercial release of maize, soybeans, cotton, canola, potatoes, papaya, alfalfa, squash, and sugar beets with specific new genetic traits.
