We need to talk about gene tech: CBMNet Management Board Member Prof Susan Molyneux Hodgson
CBMNet Management Board Member Professor Susan Molyneux Hodgson spoke at the Hay Litery festival last night in the session ‘We Need to talk about Gene Tech’.

Why is our concept of what is ‘natural’ so controversial and the idea of GM food so alarming? Scientists and sociologists come together with Daniel Davis to discuss what’s being ventured and how it is perceived.
