Abstract
Modern biotechnology is conspicuously placed among the scientific and technological advances that have generated unprecedented exuberance and skepticism in the twenty first centuty. Biotechnology also emerges idiosyncratically as one of the most capital and knowledge intensive technologies of the present day and age. The adoption and diffusion of biotechnology has been marked by polarized and controversial debates worldwide. While the benefits of the technology have been enumerated, it is argued that biotechnology can be potentially risky to the environment, human health and the socio-economic welfare of the society. In particular, concerns have been raised about the ethical, environmental and food safety threats that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) may pose.
