Hi everybody, welcome back to synthetic biology one. In this series, we present different opinions on the GMO debate. I know that you all have opinions on this, but try to leave them aside for now.

Today’s opinion comes from the board of directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This is the world’s largest general scientific society, with over 100,000 members. From their website, the AAAS seeks to “advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people.”
