"Changes that will have effects comparable to those of the Industrial Revolution and the computer-based revolution are now beginning. The next great era, a genomics revolution, is in an early phase.

Thus far, the pharamcological potentials of genomics have been emphasized, but the greatest ultimate global impact of genomics will result from the manipulation of the DNA of plants.

Ultimately, the world will obtain most of its food, fuel, fiber, chemical feedstocks, and some of its pharmaceuticals from genetically altered vegetation and trees."
