 Exclusive academician Li Jiayang: eliminating genetic differences also requires a process.


Netease Technological News Nov. 17, after the end of the dialogue between the winners of the 2008 Future Science Award and teenagers, Academician Li Jiayang, in response to an exclusive inquiry from Netease Technological Journalists, talked about the boiling controversy over genetically modified organisms. Academician Li said that the causes of misunderstandings and concerns about genetically modified organisms are very complex. There is no need to worry about GM technology, but there are some ways to eliminate disputes and differences, such as improving the scientific literacy of the relevant subjects. But at the same time, Academician Li said that it still needs a process to eliminate the differences around GM.

NetEase science and technology: Academician Li, why does rice transgenic cause such a big misunderstanding?

Li Jiayang: The reasons for misunderstanding are very complicated. It is a matter of politics, economy, trade, religion and the interests of different enterprise groups. Our country also involves the relationship between a government department. The reasons are very complicated.

NetEase Technology: is this concern necessary? Li Jiayang: no need. But many people do not understand, many people do not even know what GM is, and they firmly oppose it, which is also helpless, which involves a scientific literacy problem. It is hard to do that when the scientific literacy is less than that. NetEase Technology: how can we eliminate this difference? Li Jiayang: I think this needs a process. In this process, on the one hand, we can improve the publics scientific literacy, then the government will do more guidance, and then more standardized management. As a matter of fact, there are no problems in the science and technology of genetically modified organisms. In fact, they are problems in all aspects of management.
