Genetically modified plants and foods
New applications for genetically modified plants outside the field of nutrition will be with us very soon, for instance plants that produce medicinal active substances or other active substances used in the production of biofuels. This could mean changes in the debate on their benefits and risks. TA-SWISS participated in a European review study which points out challenges for the future.
