Hoban, Thomas; Nolan, Canice; Bennett, Allan
Panelists expressed highly critical opinions of industry, government and universities regarding agricultural biotechnology and its products, especially those from cloned animals and PMPs from food crops, identified the major problem in European acceptance of GM foods as the consumer not the regulators; food processors aren’t going to source when risk is commonly associated with GM, and described the Public Intellectual Property Resource for Agriculture (PIPRA) that hopes to provide bundles of proprietary technologies to allow the benefits of biotechnology to accrue to a broader base of crops and consumers and developing-country farmers.
