University/Corporate Relations and their Effect on Biotechnology Research

Guest: Michael Hansen.

Today on Focus we'll look at the ways in which relations between corporations and universities have affected biotechnology research.

He joins us today to explain how biotechnology has developed an emphasis on genetic engineering—profit—over agricultural ecology.
