Golden Rice: Lifesaver? Article by Angie Harmon at the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/25/sunday-review/golden-rice-lifesaver.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0

A nice description of what Golden Rice is and what it does by Alexander Stein. This includes a long list of his peer reviewed high quality publications. http://www.ajstein.de/cv/golden_rice.htm I believe that Alexander Stein knows more about the economic and policy evaluations of Golden Rice than anybody else in the world, along with Matin Qaim at the Georg-August-University of Goettingen, Goettingen Germany, as they have done considerable state of the art research.

Paper ‘Global value of GM rice: a review of expected agronomic and consumer benefits” by Matty Demont and Alexander Stein in the journal New Biotechnology
