AbstractThis case discusses some of the issues associated with the use of genetically modified plants, including ecological risks, resistance, and allergenicity. The case has two versions, or editions. This edition (the "General Edition") emphasizes the basic biochemistry and scientific ethics issues associated with genetically modified foods. Originally developed for use in a biochemistry course, it is also appropriate for use in a non-majors general, organic, and biochemistry (GOB) course and in a general biology course. The "Advanced Edition," also published on this site, probes the same issues but in greater detail and is appropriate for upper-level biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics classes.
