Insect resistant maize: A new paradigm for conducting research - Mexico, DF (Mexico) CIMMYT : 1997 - Printed

A paradigm is defined as a "model, pattern, or example." Our thesis is that the model for conducting maize research is changing. In this presentation we look at past models for conducting maize research, review some of the current models and introduce a suggestion for a future model. We are convinced that the team approach will be the hallmark of the twenty-first century, as it has been for the past several decades. Defining the team will be critical. Biotechnology offers a scientific paradigm shift that we in maize research and agriculture can use to our advantage.
