The following is an editorial summary

Over at his Collide-a-Scape blog, Keith Kloor has dissected and summarized Nature magazine’s special issue devoted to the controversial topic of genetically modified organisms. The coverage ranges from a series of debunkings to a report on the technology that’s creating the next generation of biotechnology crops. As Kloor writes, Kudos to Nature for finding that “messy middle ground” of nuance and subtlety that eludes most coverage of genetically modified organisms.
