dc.description.abstractThe debate over the value of biotechnology is polarized and impassioned. In the early days of modern biotechnology, dealing with challenged environments in agriculture (drought conditions, cold weather, and others) seemed within reach. These solutions have not yet materialized, and the search continues. Belief systems, the way information has been communicated and the way decisions are made, affect perception and public support or opposition to a new technology.
