IRRI to Conduct Live Online Discussion on GM Rice on November 5, 2013

The Philippines-based International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) will conduct a live online debate on Genetically Modified rice (Golden Rice) on November 5, 2013.

The “Let’s talk GM rice” program will be a part of the 7th International Rice Genetics Symposium (RG7) which will be held in Manila during 5 - 8 November, 2013. “Everyone is welcome to please join the live stream of "Let's talk GM rice" that will commence at 12 noon (Manila time, +8GMT). Questions from online participants will be encouraged via #ricegenetics7 and to @RiceResearch on twitter,” IRRI says.

Leading experts in rice genetics are expected to meet at the RG7 symposium which aims to discuss the importance of rice genetics and how it can help develop stress-tolerant rice and improve food security in the world. “Rice is an incredibly special crop providing more than half of the planet with food every day,” said Dr. Eero Nissilä, head of IRRI’s Plant Breeding, Genetics, and Biotechnology Division and convenor of RG7.
