The Bioscience Resource Project has identified seminal publications for scientists, educators and members of the public who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the politics and forces that impact on the ability of science to serve the public interest. These are compiled on this website’s Agriculture, Biotechnology, Food and Health and Environment resource pages. Each page provides brief synopses of and links to selected articles and websites. Topics covered on the Science and Scientists page include the key role of assumptions in science, bias and conflicts of interest in science and the effect of patents on the scientific process. Discussion of these and other important yet controversial scientific issues are often avoided in the scientific community, much to the detriment of society and science itself.
Isn't one of the primary lessons of biology that of the capacity of nature to outwit us?~Max Delbruck
