10. Biotechnologies: The Ideal Victim?
Transgenic Plants, Volume 86, the latest release in the series Advances in Botanical Research, brings together information needed by many teachers, researchers and managers who have to consider biotechnology from a scientific or legal point-of-view. It presents authors who bring their long personal experience on a given subject. Although the subjects are technical in nature, the take-home message of each chapter is understandable by non-specialists.
- Encompasses various aspects of the GMO debate (its historical background, current status, recent research outcomes, potential future developments)
- Written by highly competent authors from all continents
- Based on facts and written in a dispassionate and non-polemical tone
