Policy and regulations of GMOs

Let's get together and discuss the existing policy and regulations around environmental release of GMOs, whether they're plants, foods, or algae. The glowing plant project is an excellent first example of what's to come in the near future, like miraculin lettuce, plants that detect toxins in water, bacteria that remediate polluted water, or maybe even zebra-roses. It would be wonderful if you feel like presenting specific research you've done on the policy/regulations, just email [masked] and we can make an agenda, or hop on the BioCurious mailing list.

    So we've had a week to think about all things GMO related. Share your new thoughts!

    Thanks for coming, everyone! Wonderful way to kick off our discussion of genetically modified organisms.

    I added links and cool pictures to the notes, check it out here:
    The notes also have a link to "How to Eat a GMO", a must-see video by Zack Denfeld.

    Any questions? Clarifications? If you didn't understand it, I bet 10 other people didn't either. Reply here or email me: [masked]

    Hi all,

    I wanted to clarify what we'll be talking about tonight. GMOs is a wide and sometimes sensitive subject. I'm excited to be getting a discussion started but will be keeping tonight's presentation focused around a broad overview of genetically modified organisms and the government regulations.

    Tonight's agenda:

    + history of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
    + GMOs in the wild
    + regulatory path followed by existing GMOs
    + next generation genetic modifications
    + Methods for engineering
    + Existing USA and International government regulations

    We will not be talking about:
    - any BioCurious policies, including safety policies
    - Glowing Plant project specifics

    Would be great if someone who knows a lot about algae engineering or animal engineering will be there, my most recent sleuthing has been focused on plants. If you are coming let me know by 4:00!
