Social Lubricant

The Field Museum in Chicago is presenting an exhibition: Gregor Mendel: Planting the Seeds of Genetics from September 15, 2006 – April 1, 2007. If you scroll to the bottom of that link, you'll notice that Monsanto is the sponsor. While it's a simple, and pretty expected, position for a "life science" company to sponsor an exhibition about the "founder" of modern genetics, it may also be an indicator of the exhibition's willingness, or unwillingness, to address contemporary issues related to genetics and biotechnology.
