A variety of corn genetically engineered to contain an E.coli gene has
been approved for test plots in several undisclosed locations in
Colorado. Proponents say the new "biopharmaceutical" mutants could
eventually help create inexpensive E.coli vaccines. Consumers, farmers,
and public health specialists are concerned the crop could spread far
and wide, as pollen "injected" with an E.coli gene drifts in the wind
towards neighboring farms and natural ecosystems.
