What if?
What if we could engineer a crop to make its own fertilizer, or a banana to taste like strawberries? Talk about ways we could change our agriculture and food. What kinds of GMOs do you want to see?

The Developing World
Genetic Engineering can have many implications for the developing world. Issues of food production, malnutrition, farm labor, and more can be affected by this technology. Will it help, or make problems worse?

Philosophy
All sciences have philosophical implications. What does it mean about humanity and its relationship with plants when genes can be moved and modified at-will? Does it fundamentally change that relationship, or does it instead change our perspective?

Cross-Culture
Food cultures around the world are quite varied. Many of the ways that we approach discussions of food (and genetic engineering) depend upon the food cultures we come from. How are things different elsewhere in the world?

Marketing
Food is heavily marketed, and it's not just the junk food in the center of the supermarket. Every food producer wants a share of the consumer spending pie - how have they been trying to get it?
