“Upon Further Review: The Obama Administration Revisits US Ag Biotech Regulations” by Tom Zinnen
The Obama Administration is revisiting the Coordinated Framework that regulates federal ag biotech across three federal agencies: FDA, EPA and USDA.

New gene-editing techniques (eg, CRISPR) likely have helped spark this review, which will be an intriguing case study of how the Obama Administration late in its last term handles a Gordian Knot torqued with scientific, political, international and epistemological twists.
