Research Tips & GBS Databases

When you're reading and you find terms that relate to your topic, such as biotechnology, GMOs, eco-friendly, sustainable, etc., write them down. You can use them as key words when you are searching for more information. 

If you're searching in Google, be sure to avoid sites that are biased for or against genetically modified plants and animals. Stick to reliable scientific, news, and government resources.
