In Genes for Africa, Jennifer Thomson separates fact from fiction and explains why and how GM crops can help us combat poverty, starvation and disease in the developing world, in a safe and responsible way.
She explains the technology, addresses controversial issues such as food safety, patents, labelling, regulation and controls and ends with a focus on Africa and possible future developments in GM technology.
