In tracing the distribution of patents, Cao engages STS methods to examine the commercialization process for GM rice in China. The gene technology and regulatory elements of two domestic strains of Bt rice illustrated in Figure 7.4 reﬂects the complex “long-chain” (p. 173) research and development pipeline which extends into the competitive patent landscape. Cao’s analysis of the “right to know” movement concerning GM food labelling reﬂect how Chinese publics became animated regarding transgenic technology in food. The engagement of non-governmental organizations (NGO) such as Greenpeace, anti-GMO activists, and science journal coverage all contributed towards raising public awareness. The shift of social debates from earlier concerns of food security or biosafety by reframing GMOs as issues of food safety has greatly transformed science policymaking process in China. In examining “China as a GMO Nation” in the ﬁnal chapter, Cao makes the pragmatic assessment that planting GM crops or placing gene-edited rice on tables
