What if we open sourced genetic engineering?
Open questions ask a question each week.
The topics vary from technology to art to the food on your table.
We ask a question. You leave a response. It's as simple as that.
Open Question #1: What would happen if we open sourced genetic engineering?
Michael Pollan talks about the relationship of open source food, intellectual property and genetic engineering. Monsanto controls the intellectual property of foods we depend on and do not allow scientists the freedom to study their genetically modified foods. Scientists are now shining a light on this, in hopes they can gather their own data since it is not made accessible by Monsanto.
