"Field studies find lower productivity with GM seeds" //

it sounds like monsanto engineered some soya to be resistant to weed killer, so they could sell soya and weed killer... not so farmers could grow lots more soya.
venter is determined to solve some of our biggest problems, using genetic engineering
great, now ditch the corn and put the genes into a plant that's a much more efficient producer...
hopefully the work will yield results that are useful for other applications as well.
genetic engineering isn't harmful per se... like any technology, it's what you do with it that creates the risks
great talk by craig venter on his genetic-engineering efforts
