Massive Science Report № 1. You Don't Know GMOs. We've gathered a team of geneticists, biologists, and environmental scientists to bring you the most up-to-date report on the science, history, and safety of genetically-modified organisms. Biosafety of genetically modified organisms: Basic concepts, methods and issues. Edited by M.K.A. Chowdhury, M.I. Hoque and A. Sonnino, this page book comprises the proceedings of the training course that took place in Gazipur, Bangladesh on November as part of a technical cooperation programme (TCP) project, implemented jointly.

Genetically modified organisms have been at the centre of a major public controversy, involving different interests and actors. While much attention has been devoted to consumer views on genetically modified food, there have been few attempts to understand the perceptions of genetically modified technology among farmers. In general, he argues, opponents have been good at drawing on language and image to create doubt about genetic engineering. "When you use language that is negative and confrontational, when you call the product a genetically modified organism instead of a genetically enhanced food, you’re conveying a kind of creepiness to the whole process.".

  Kenya closer to giving long-awaited GMO cotton a green light finalising a report for the Cabinet in a move that could allow the lifting of the ban on imports of genetically modified organisms.   Famine and the GM debate. Britain and Belgium to examine the issue of genetically modified crops. Its report led the government to maintain the ban, with President Levy Mwanawasa calling GM food "poison". A consortium called the African Biotechnology Stakeholders' Forum has been established by GM proponents to encourage the use of GM crops.

The use of GMOs in agriculture is rapidly increasing, since it produces a greater yield in crops than the traditional way of farming.

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) refer broadly to organisms that are produced when selected individual genes are transferred from a given donor organism into another target organism, typically conferring desired properties to the new organism. GMOs can include plants, animals, and enzymes.
