Controversies surround the genetic modification of plants. This project investigates the fundamental scientific concepts underlying bio-monitoring of genetically modified (GM) organisms and the societal issues raised by increased use of GM organisms (including regulatory and safety issues, global food production, comparisons to other forms of crop production and environmental costs and benefits).
