Robert Wager, M.Sc.

My goal is to help explain the science of GE crops and derived foods, with an emphasis on agriculture and food production. My website has pages for my in-person appearances, my peer-reviewed publications and for links to other sources on GE crops and derived foods, as well as related topics. The last page is a little bit about me. I want to help people understand the evidence and science of genetically engineered crops and derived foods, and to cut through some of the misinformation out there.

About Me

I am lucky to live on the West Coast of Canada on Vancouver Island, in the small town of Nanaimo. I currently teach at the local university, Vancouver Island University (VIU), which is in Nanaimo as well. My classes are on molecular biology and biochemistry, and I conduct research on genetically modified foods and crops. In my career, I have become familiar with other topics as well, such as agriculture, aquaculture, biochemistry, biology, biotechnology, environment, journalism, plants, science and sustainability. All of these topics are related to each other, and if you go through my publications, appearances and tweets, you'll see references to all of them.
