Viewpoint: CRISPR crop revolution provides counterpunch to ‘misinformation’ promoted by anti-GMO campaigners | Genetic Literacy Project

Gene-edited crops usually can’t be distinguished from conventionally-bred varieties. Opponents of NBTs may never comprehend this basic lesson of plant genetics, but that doesn’t mean regulators have to follow their lead.
