The goal of this web site is to provide balanced information and links to other resources on the technology and issues surrounding transgenic crops (also known as genetically modified or GM crops). The site's authors are engaged in plant genetics research and teaching at Colorado State University. They receive no funds from companies involved in transgenic crop development, nor are they affiliated with groups campaigning against such crops. Funding for the web site currently comes from a three-year grant by the United States Department of Agriculture under the Initiative for Future Agriculture and Food Systems program.
