The what and why of gene technology.


Why does public debate and policy treat the application of genetic technology differently when we are discussing medicine and food? Why is our concept of what is ‘natural’ so controversial and the idea of GM food so alarming? Scientists and sociologists came together to discuss what’s being ventured and how it is perceived.

With Dale Sanders FRS, Susan Molyneux Hodgson and Stephen Tindale. This event was chaired by Daniel Davis
