I did make the point that if more GMO research had been funded publicly we would probably have seen a greater emphasis on quality traits visible to the consumer. However, I ALSO said, as part of the same statement, that I have long been disappointed by the meager level of funding for GMO research and other innovations designed to benefit farmers in underdeveloped countries. We could have made much more progress in this area with better public sector funding. The point about developing countries didn't make it into the article, but I think it is by far the most important of the two. -- Bill Thompson
