In a Plant and Molecular Biology GRC in the late 1980s, a scientist described the genetic modification of a plant virus that resulted in the expansion of its host range. Many scientists were obviously upset and an extra impromptu session was held that evening to debate the release of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) in the environment. It was the first open discussion I had witnessed in the plant community concerning the issue of GMOs.
