Public perceptions of agricultural biotechnology

, : Public perceptions of agricultural biotechnology. Agricultural biotechnology: issues and choices: 139-161

Biotechnology is fraught with concern and controversy within both the scientific community and the broader public. Significant portions of the public have acquired some interest in and understanding of the new technologies and have articulated specific concerns about their applications. The public's interest in and knowledge of biotechnology, in general, and agricultural biotechnology, in particular, have increased throughout the 1980s.

Increased detection of tuberculosis (TB) using intensified or active case finding (ICF) is one of the cornerstones of the Stop TB Strategy, and contrasts with passive case finding (PCF) which relies on self-reported symptoms. There is no clear gui...
