Developed by four professors in the Soil and Crops Sciences and Life Sciences Departments at Colorado State University, this site aims to "provide balanced information and links to other resources on the technology and issues surrounding transgenic crops (also known as genetically modified or GM crops)." None of the authors is affiliated with companies involved in transgenic crop development or with groups campaigning against such crops. The site covers topics such as plant breeding, how transgenic crops are made -- including a Flash demo (not working at time of review), regulation of transgenic crops, current and future transgenic products, risks and concerns, and news updates. The authors deliberately steer clear of the moral or ethical implications of transgenic technology, staying focused on the scientific issues. Throughout the site, links are provided to related sites and other resources. Other sections include a bibliography, quiz, and FAQ.
