A newly published meta-analysis provides powerful scientific evidence that genetically engineered maize is on average inherently safer and more productive than non-GE alternatives.
Latin America, already a major producer of GMO crops, took steps to further advance the technology during 2017.
In the past 50 years, three major discoveries have fueled the field of genetic engineering. Together, they’ve revolutionized medicine and agriculture. Individually, they’ve sparked controversy.
Genetic engineering: the first major discovery
Nigeria launches an innovative Science Cafe platform to advance scientific literacy and ease public fears about technology.
A “passion for plants” honed as a young schoolboy is what first attracted Rajaram Madhaven to farming but a passion for science is what got him good at it.
Maddox Prize judges say scientists are under attack globally and need more institutional support.
