What Is Biofortified?

Frank N. Foode, mascot for the Biofortified blog, provides a fun face to complex issues in agriculture, food, and biology. The authors for Biofortified are mainly researchers in genetics, biology, and agriculture.

Biofortified's volunteer authors are devoted to providing factual information and fostering discussion about agriculture, especially plant genetics and genetic engineering. The site is written by grad students, professors, and guest experts.

The posts range from short FYI posts on meetings, books, or people; to longer posts on how companies are looking to develop a way to keep apples from browning (Would you eat a brown apple?) to how corn hybrids are developed (Maize is a Machine).
