Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #25)

60. That is a very poor article, but check the Nature article in post #6

This paragraph appears:
"More than 1,100 kilometres to the north, researchers are experimenting with chestnuts that contain genes thought to provide resistance, which were taken from Chinese chestnuts as well as plants such as wheat, peppers and grapes. At the State University of New York in Syracuse, plant pathologist Bill Powell and forest biologist Chuck Maynard have planted some 600 transgenic trees for field trials of disease resistance. A transgenic variety with a wheat gene for the enzyme oxalate oxidase, which disarms the fungus, has already shown resistance in the field."

So there are GM Chestnuts, the author of the first article just doesn't present his information well.
