Inter-Academy Report: An Update

Two blog posts. Both are a must-read.

  1. Rahul Siddharthan: The Academies' Report on GM Crops. He publishes a letter written for publication by his colleague Gautam Menon and him.

  2. Rahul Basu: Bt Egg(plant) in the Face.

Update: Just saw Vishu Guttal's post -- Indian Science chants 'Jairam' (and 'Jayaram') before the Ayodhya verdict -- on my Google Reader.

    They should have heeded to this clause in BRAI in the original form. Activists voice concerns over Biotech Regulatory Authority Bill:
    “whoever, without any evidence or scientific record misleads the public about the safety of organisms and products…shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than six months but which may extend to one year and with fine which may extend to two lakh rupees or with both”.
