NRC revisits GE crop risks

The National Research Council (NRC) convened a committee meeting on the risks of genetically engineered (GE) crops via live webcast on September 15. This is the latest committee (see Table 1) in a series of NRC panels that have looked at evidence on the topic. The panel was asked to examine the NRC study “Genetically engineered crops: past experience and future prospects,” which evaluates old and new concerns and claims about GE crops. The committee aims to provide an independent, objective and up-to-date assessment of GE crops, with plans to release the report to the public in 2016.
