SPECIAL ISSUE: The Nontarget Effects of Genetic Manipulation
Announcing nontarget.org — A Project of The Nature Institute
Toward a More Informed GMO Debate
by Stephen L. Talbott
Much of the debate concerning genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their widespread use in animal and human food, and their impact upon the environment could be raised to an entirely new and more productive level if the undisputed facts we have gathered together in our "Nontarget Effects" project were more widely known.
by Craig Holdrege
The remarkable range of nontarget effects in genetic experiments throws a great deal of light upon the engineering practices and, more importantly, upon the character of the organisms we experiment upon. These two articles offer a summary and overview of nontarget effects, helping you to bring some sense and order to all the claims and counterclaims about genetic engineering.
