The NGIN news and research service was founded in the spring of 1998 to report on the global campaign of opposition to the imposition of genetic engineering.
NGIN has developed a particular focus on the ways in which hype, deception and spin are used to promote this technology.
Notable NGIN successes include the exposure of:
Monsanto's PR dirty tricks operations
the corporate take-over of independent science
the ways in which the biotech industry and its supporters manipulate the information provided to government, the media, farmers and the public
NGIN's investigative work is undertaken by a loose alliance of independent researchers co-ordinated by NGIN.
