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.
