    Abstract

    In this collection of essays is sought to find applications of genomics technology and the different social contexts in which this is and will be taking place. In this way it will be possible to reflect on the social impacts of food genomics on food production and food consumption. To this end social scientists have written five essays in which societal issues concerning food genomics are investigated and evaluated: from the viewpoint of the social-economic organisation of both production and consumption of food; on world food security; the wishes and concerns of citizens and consumers and the use of animals
