The GMO Revolution

GM crops symbolize an important evolution in plant breeding. An evolution that is based on modern plant biotechnology, a new scientific discipline that originated in Belgium at Ghent University and which examines the genetic basis of plant characteristics. This knowledge forms the basis for a range of new strategies for crop improvements. The GMO Revolution offers a balanced and fact-based insight into how GM crops could be useful in solving current and future issues facing agriculture: from potatoes that can protect themselves against late blight to trees that can be used in biofuel production, to rice that contains more vitamins and wheat with a safe form of gluten.
