Steven Suppan, July 30, 2019 | The U.S. Department of Agriculture wants agribusiness to sell more genetically engineered (GE) seeds and food products all over the world, as soon as possible. This rule would go beyond already controversial genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to encompass hundreds of new products of new gene and genome editing techniques. The fastest way to do that?
Patti Mulligan, July 15, 2019 | INTERVIEW: We sat down with the GES Center’s newest Senior Research Scholar, Khara Grieger. She joined our team in the spring of 2019, but has already given a colloquium and is working on several nanotechnology-related research projects.
Emerging Biotechnologies in Agriculture | April 2, 2019, 5:30PM, Duke Energy Hall, Hunt Library – $10-$35 | Join the GES Center, industry and government experts, and the Triangle BABCNC as we discuss genetic approaches to agricultural pest management and crop science and explore the myths and realities of the GMO debate in the US and Europe.
The Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center at NC State University serves as an international hub of interdisciplinary research, engaged scholarship, and inclusive dialogues surrounding these opportunities and challenges. Positioned at the nexus of science…
This article reviews the current state of gene-editing regulation for crops, illuminating the ways in which technology developers are repeating practices that may lead to the public and ethical failures of the first generation genetically engineered crops, and argues that the contentious socio-political history of genetic engineering will repeat itself for gene editing if these continue.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science elects 416 fellows, including four from NC State. Meet our newest members of the prestigious organization.

PRESS RELEASE: July 9, 2018. Twentieth-century advances in plant and animal breeding did much to help meet the increasing food, fiber, feed, and fuel needs of an expanding world. But continued population growth, resource shortages, climate change, and pest prevalence make sustainability a daunting yet essential task. Genome editing is a powerful new method that enables unprecedented control over genetic material and offers the opportunity to make rapid advances that influence agricultural practices.
In this episode we talk with Fred Gould, William Neal Reynolds Professor of Agriculture and Life Sciences, about the rising rates of herbicide and pesticide resistance, the current state of the resistance arms race and what we need to do in the future to protect our crops and human health from resistant pests.
