Rothamsted's open letter is an excellent initiative in opening up the discussion of gm with its critics rather than hiding behind a wall of silence and the assumption that scientists always know best and their critics are irrational or unscientific. I hope the critics respond and engage in serious discussion as I have always tried to do with the opponents of animal experimentation
