The research aims were to: investigate change over time in public acceptance of various examples of biotechnology; investigate attitudes towards biotechnology generally and specifically towards, the treatment of diabetes using cells from a pig, the GM potato and use of GM bacteria to ameliorate the detrimental effects of DDT; identify and determine the role and relative importance of affective responses or feelings towards biotechnology in attitudes towards biotechnology; and investigate the relationship between worldviews and attitudes towards biotechnology.en
