Abstract

The introduction of technologies for the direct genetic manipulation or alteration of organisms offers tremendous promise of improved agronomic prosperity through the enhancement of existing agricultural systems and through development of alternative products and methods. These technologies also pose philosophical, socioeconomic, and environmental questions. A number of these questions were considered at the bioethics symposium that was held here at Iowa State last November, the purpose of which was to examine the social, ethical, regulatory, and legal issues associated with the application of cell culture, molecular biology, and other so-called biotechnologies to agriculture.
