  1. Genetically Engineered Oil Seed Crops and Novel Terrestrial Nutrients: Ethical Considerations.Chris MacDonald, Stefanie Colombo & Michael T. Arts - 2019 - Science and Engineering Ethics 25 (5):1485-1497.
    Genetically engineered organisms have been at the center of ethical debates among the public and regulators over their potential risks and benefits to the environment and society. Unlike the currently commercial GE crops that express resistance or tolerance to pesticides or herbicides, a new GE crop produces two bioactive nutrients and docosahexaenoic acid ) that heretofore have largely been produced only in aquatic environments. This represents a novel category of risk to ecosystem functioning. The present paper describes why growing oilseed (...)

  • Science Policy and Concomitant Research in Synthetic Biology—Some Critical Thoughts.Kristin Hagen - 2016 - NanoEthics 10 (2):201-213.
    In science policy, public controversy around synthetic biology has often been presented as a major risk because it could deter innovation. The following inter-related strategies for avoiding contestation have been observed: There have been attempts to close down debates by alluding to the importance and legitimacy of reliance on scientific evidence as input to regulatory processes. Scientific policy advice has stressed sufficiency of existing regulation, economic risks of additional regulation and/or suggestions for monitoring that are limited in scope. Initiatives for (...)
