Journal Club: GMOs

This Friday, March 28, 2008, we will hold our second journal club meeting and we hope you can attend. The topic is broadly based on GMOs and Biotech. The attached readings will be used to initiate discussion.

We will meet at CISTP in the Elliott School from 6pm to 7:30pm on Friday, March 28, 2008. Beverages will be provided. Although Friday is not the best evening for everyone, it seems to be the time when the most people are available (no classes, etc.). Also, if this Friday is anything like the last, we will most likely move to a local watering hole following the JC.

Below are four articles (relatively short):
1- ISAAA Executive summary gives a brief overview of biotech/GMOs
2- GMO_risks_ethics: covers the risks and concerns of omitting research in the context of GMOs
3- GMO_scientific responsibility: a short piece covering the roles of scientists in the use of 'golden rice'
4- Labeling Policy for GMOs: covers the debate on labeling GMOs

We hope to see you there!
