GM Crop Database CERA's database of safety information (formerly hosted by AGBIOS) includes not only plants produced using recombinant DNA technologies (e.g., genetically engineered or transgenic plants), but also plants with novel traits that may have been produced using more traditional methods, such as accelerated mutagenesis or plant breeding. These latter plants are only regulated in Canada. Also, please note that regulatory approval should not be interpreted as an indication that the product is in commercial production. There are many examples of products that were granted regulatory approval but were never commercialized, or if they were, have been subsequently discontinued. By setting conditions for more than one criterion from the options below, you can construct boolean queries. For example, selecting "maize" as the crop plant and "herbicide tolerance" as the trait will display a listing of herbicide tolerant maize products.

Murderpedia Murder of Shirley Duguay In 1994, Shirley Duguay of Prince Edward Island, Canada went missing and was later found dead in a shallow grave. Among the most compelling pieces of evidence in the case was a leather jacket covered in Duguay's blood and over two dozen white feline hairs. Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigators recalled that during a previous interview with the estranged husband, Douglas Beamish, that he had a white cat of which he named Snowball. The detectives confiscated the cat and drew blood in which they intended to use DNA fingerprinting to compare it to the DNA found in the white hairs from the jacket, but they found that no one in the world had done this before. After contacting the Laboratory of Genomic Diversity, a laboratory specializing not in forensics, but in the study of genetic diseases, detectives and scientists were able to develop a method in which to test the feline DNA.

America's Justice System James Holmes walked into a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in 2012 carrying three guns including a semi-automatic rifle and opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring 70 more. Nobody, not even his defense attorneys, denied that. But those attorneys still told a jury and a judge that Holmes was not guilty of those crimes—because he was insane. Last month, that jury rejected that assertion, finding Holmes guilty on all counts. Holmes’ plea didn’t get him off, but it did get people talking about the insanity defense again.
