Social dimensions of synthetic biology in the agrifood sector: the perspective of Chinese and EU scientists

PurposeScientists' perceptions of societal needs and priorities will shape the innovation trajectories of synthetic biology (SB). In turn, these will be shaped by the funding and regulatory

Public Perceptions Regarding Genomic Technologies Applied to Breeding Farm Animals: A Qualitative Study

Overall, study participants were more positive towards genomic technologies applied to promote animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and human health, and research participants were most negative about genetic modification and the application of gene drives, independent of the benefits delivered.

Genetically engineered heat-resistant coral: An initial analysis of public opinion

Rising seawater temperatures are contributing to coral degradation in the Great Barrier Reef. Synthetic biology technologies offer the potential to enhance coral resilience to higher water

Genetically engineered coral: A mixed-methods analysis of initial public opinion

To explore what the public think of genetically engineered coral, qualitative responses to an open-ended question in a survey of 1,148 of the Australian public were analysed.

An Update of Public Perceptions of Synthetic Biology: Still Undecided?

The discourse on the fundamental issues raised by synthetic biology, such as biosafety and biosecurity, intellectual property, environmental consequences and ethical and societal implications, is

Public Understanding of Synthetic Biology

The objective of this article is not to draw exhaustive conclusions about public perceptions of synthetic biology but to provide readers with an integrated review of the findings from 4 years of

Uncritical and unbalanced coverage of synthetic biology in the Nordic press

The press coverage of synthetic biology in the major Nordic countries between 2009 and 2014 was found to be event-driven and there were striking similarities between countries when it comes to framing, language use, and treated themes.

It is suggested that analogs to cloning, genetic engineering and stem cell research appear to be recurrent in the framing process of synthetic biology, and the domain of application seems to be another decisive factor in the framed process.

Attitudes towards genetically modified animals in food production

– Food products developed using genetically modified (GM) animals may soon be introduced in Europe and beyond. Their successful commercialisation depends on consumer acceptance, and so it is timely

Synthetic Biology in the Press

Striking similarities were found in the synthetic biology press coverage in Sweden and Italy between 2009 and 2013, probably related to a marked dependence on the common sources of the articles and the lack of critical scrutiny on the behalf of the media.

The synthetic biology puzzle: a qualitative study on public reflections towards a governance framework

The findings suggest that discussants favoured a gradual implementation process of synthetic biology, which is receptive to questions about the distribution of possible benefits, and contextualises the analysed public views with content from policy reports and previous empirical studies on public engagement.

Ethical perception of synthetic biology

Modern biotechnology has moved forward by the introduction of the synthetic biology technique. By using synthetic biology, it is possible to construct mice genes in the laboratory and replace the
