Asscientists, we do not claim to have all the answers. However, our scientificcommunity must be able to conduct regulated and approved trials and experimentswithout the threat of vandalism hanging over them. Everyone involved in allsides of the GM debate wants answers to questions. We will only get these bycompleting the research.
We understand that some people do not agree with this research and we support and encourage our funded scientists to engage with a range of views around their work. I hope that the critics of the Rothamsted trial will now be willing to engage the scientists in a discussion about their specific concerns – but without leaving the threat of vandalism of their work hanging over them.
