The Bioscience Resource Project has identified seminal publications for scientists, educators, and others who wish to gain a deeper understanding of (1) the latest scientific understanding in specific areas and (2) how politics impact the ability of science to serve the public interest. Our Agriculture, Biotechnology, Food, Human Genetic Predispositions, and Health and Environment resource pages provide annotated links to selected articles and websites. The Science and Scientists page covers the impact of scientific assumptions, personal bias, conflicts of interest, and 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.
