Metabolic Engineering of Wheat Provitamin A by Simultaneously Overexpressing CrtB and Silencing Carotenoid Hydroxylase (TaHYD) Increasing the provitamin A content in staple crops via carotenoid metabolic engineering is one way to address vitamin A deficiency. In this work a combination of methods was applied to specifically increase β-carotene content in wheat by metabolic engineering. Endosperm-specific […]
As people dedicated to fair and judicious application of ethical standards in science, we ask the OSTP to take a progressive stance in removing any requirements for frivolous animal feed testing in the process of approving genetically modified foods.
If GMO labeling becomes a reality, the expense it will take to make this happen WILL be passed along to the consumer. Are you questioning why yet? via (gmo) labeling the harvest – nebraskawheatie.
Recently there has been some traction with ongoing developments to create real vegan dairy products through genetic engineering circumventing the need for animal bodies. These are the types of efforts for which we have been striving to clear the way. Biotechnology is starting to empower us with powerful solutions to problems vegans have been striving […]
Are Indian farmers committing suicide over their GMO crops? Look past the alarming narrative and seek the real facts so real solutions can be found. Bt cotton and suicides in India | Biology Fortified, Inc. Bt Cotton and farmer suicides in India | International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) How Seeds of a False Story […]
This is an antiGMO “meme” from a website called Vegan Street: Is it shocking and scary? Let’s look at the claims: “Genetically Modified Organisms are not independently tested” This is completely false. There is a tremendous amount of study on GMOs including many that are independent. Egregious testing on something the scientific consensus has found […]
As vegans, we feel it is important to stay open-minded about genetic engineering and biotechnology. Please read further to find out why.
