GM banned

Before the Easter break, I wrote a news story for Current Biology on how Germany is edging towards a ban of the GM maize MON810. As it takes over two weeks for these articles to come out, it was pure luck that the piece appeared on Tue 14th of April, which was the day when Germany's minister for agriculture, Ilse Aigner, made her move and banned the GM crop. Or maybe she read her copy of Current Biology in the morning and thought "damn, I knew there was something I wanted to do". :D

Anyhow. My story is here:
