Biotechnology is one of the most controversial fields of science and technology. Some people think that it is a highly complicated field of science, with questions raised against how things are done by scientists in the lab and what their real intentions are in developing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The fear of the unknown sometimes becomes an excuse to exercise the precautionary principle, which could block the progress of biotech innovations. Thus, ISAAA produced a new video titled Inside the Biotech Lab, which seeks to dispel doubts and fears about crop biotechnology by showing step-by-step footages of what actually happens inside a laboratory when using a gene gun. The clips were filmed at the Institute of Plant Breeding, University of the Philippines Los Banos.

Watch and share the video to help others be informed about the process of genetically engineering a plant using a gene gun.
