2011 Conference Presentation by Scientist Dr. Allison Wilson of The Bioscience Resource Project. In this video Dr. Wilson describes her work on the unintended consequences of genetic engineering. Unintended consequences (UCs) have important implications for farmers, scientists and regulators. Documented consequences range from loss of pathogen resistance to yield losses to increases in out-crossing. UCs are often ignored by researchers despite their importance, yet understanding their origins has important implications for basic research on genome structure and gene regulation.
