A Structural Model of US Corn Farmers’ Pest Control Decisions: Rootworm Resistance in US Corn Fields

In 2009, corn farmers planting rootworm resistant (Bt-CRW) seeds experienced unexpectedly severe yield losses throughout the U.S. Corn Belt. By 2011, resistance had been reported in Illinois, Iowa,

Response to “The anglerfish deception”

Barreiras técnicas comerciais aos transgênicos no Brasil: a regulação nos estados do sul

Desde 1998, uma decisao judicial suspendeu a comercializacao de organismos geneticamente modificados (OGMs) no Brasil, particularmente a soja Roundup Ready (RR) da Monsanto. Seguindo essa decisao,

Genetically Modified (GM) Crops: Precautionary Science and Conflicts of Interests

One of the major conclusions is that precautionary GMP usage requires risk assessment criteria yet undeveloped, as well as broader and more long-term conceptions of risk,uncertainty, and ignorance.

Parallel analysis of transcript and metabolic profiles: a new approach in systems biology

Using the techniques described here suggests that metabolic profiling has a higher resolution than expression profiling in the identification of candidate genes for modifying the metabolite content of biological systems.

Stand der Sicherheitsforschung und Risikoabschätzung zu allgemeinen Risiken

Zur Zeit sind in der EU nur einige gentechnisch veranderte Pflanzen auf dem Markt, die als Lebens- oder Futtermittel genutzt werden. Dazu zahlen vor allem insekten-resistenter Mais, sowie Sojabohnen

Assessment of GM Crops in Commercial Agriculture
