Other Links

This is a collection of links to excellent content elsewhere on the web, that provides an accurate perspective and voice for explaining the real science of GMO's.

Other Personal Websites/Blogs

Genetic Maize - Blog by Anastasia Bodnar, dispels myths about GMOs and other science topics.

GMO Pundit - David Tribe helping readers navigate the confusing myths of modern biology.

Illumination - Kevin Folta’s blog. An old adage says, “It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness”, and Kevin thinks we better do both.

Skeptical Raptor - Enjoying “the jungles of the internet, where junk science, pseudoscience, myths, logical fallacies, and outright lies survive unchecked.” SR is snarky and clever. Nice combination for us skeptics.

Tomorrow’s Table – Dr. Pam Ronald’s blog on genetics, food and farming. Pamela Ronald is Professor of Plant Pathology at the University of California, Davis, where she studies the role that genes play in a plant’s response to its environment. Her laboratory has genetically engineered rice for resistance to diseases and flooding, both of which are serious problems of rice crops in Asia and Africa. Ronald is co-author with her husband, an organic farmer.

Vegan GMO – A vegan’s rational approach to transgenic technology (among the numerous virtues of the site, provides a list of resources on the Seralini study).

Organizations and Groups

Academics Review - Testing popular claims against peer reviewed science.

AgriBiotech – University of California’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Biofortified – stronger plants, stronger science, stronger communication Providing factual information and fostering discussion about agriculture, especially plant genetics and genetic engineering.

University of California Biotech – This website provides educational resources focused broadly on issues related to agriculture, crops, animals, foods and the technologies used to improve them.

Applied Mythology - What if much that you think you know about agriculture, farming and food isn’t actually true? What if there are “myths” that have been intentionally and mostly unintentionally spread about these issues? What if the truth about these issues matters for the future of humanity? That is what this blog is about.

Council for Biotechnology Information – founded in 2000, CBI’s mandate has been dedicated to presenting science-based information to the public.

Crop Genetics Innovation and Scientific Literacy – carries out exploratory research to accelerate gene discovery in the world’s most important staple food crops, establishes partnerships in the interest of improving food security in the developing world, and enables scientists to better communicate their research results to the public.

Science 2.0 – This site includes everything ‘science’ – not to mention great pieces by Hank Campbell (co-author of Science Left Behind).

GMO Crops (mis)information Site – Providing centralized information resources on GMO crops.

Sense about Science – Equipping people to make sense of science and scientific evidence. Check out the Plant Science Expert Panel, ask your questions!

Science-Based Medicine - Exploring issues and controversies in the relationship between science and medicine.

Genetic Literacy Project – Where science trumps ideology. See this October 8, 2013 post by JoAnna Wendel “GM foods among most analyzed subject in science“.
