The Science Media Centre tells of a recent debate on genetic engineering hosted at Lincoln University.
The question addressed was: “Should Genetic Engineering play a part in New Zealand’s future?”
Jon Hickford, past president of the NZIAHS, was among those who took part in a discussion hosted by broadcaster Kim Hill. Other panellists were Tony Conner, AgResearch; Philip Gregan, New Zealand Winegrowers; Rob Cruickshank, Lincoln University; Christine Dann, Organics Aotearoa New Zealand and Richard Newcomb, Plant & Food Research.
The media centre’s post provides a link to a video recording of the debate.
