Many studies have looked at the effects of genetically-modified (GM) plants on single non-target insects. However, agro-ecosystems are characterised by numerous insect species forming food webs. This study is the first to investigate different transgenic disease-resistant wheat lines and their effect on the structure of whole aphid-parasitoid food...

British scientists have successfully developed chickens that do not transmit bird flu infections, which could inevitably reduce the risk of deadly avian flu epidemics in humans. Scientists from Cambridge and Edinburgh universities report that although the chickens they genetically modified (GM) still fell ill to H5N1 bird flu and died, they did not transmit the virus to other chickens they came into contact with. "Preventing virus transmission in chickens should reduce the economic impact...
