Who Twists the Helix

The "Who Twists the Helix" international conference taking place at the University of Cambridge this week is one of many meetings around the world marking the 50th Anniversary of the discovery of DNA. The conference bills itself as "a trans-disciplinary exploration of the powers that could decide our genetic futures" that includes a "Genetic Futures Jury," a panel of non-specialist citizens who will vote on the key issues discussed at the conference. British journalist Andy Rowell will be presenting a talk looking at who is spinning the pro-GM agenda in the UK, based on research to be published in PR Watch's First Quarter 2003 issue.
