Notes: According to The Genetic Literacy Project (GLP) they “explore the intersection of DNA research and real world applications of genetics with the media and policy worlds in order to disentangle science from ideology.” The GLP has been accused of accepting funding from corporations that are involved in the agriculture genetics business due to their acceptance of the consensus of science as it relates to GMO’s. On the GLP website they offer a full disclosure of their funding which indicates they do not receive funding from Pro-GMO companies such as Monsanto.
