Event description

Description

Recent technological advances mean scientists can now 'cut and paste' the DNA of crops to make agriculture more efficient. Experts say that this addresses many of the concerns that existed with more traditional genetic engineering techniques. Last year the Scottish Government opted to ban all genetically modified crops to preserve what they see as their “clean and green brand”. This was met with frustration from scientists and farmers alike, but who do you believe is right? Join us at the National Museum of Scotland on 11th October to learn about the technology and hear leading researchers from The University of Edinburgh debate audience questions with MSPs and others to make your own mind up.
