As part of our #GPSonGMOs series, GMO Answers is highlighting agriculture’s female farmers and scientists and their stories from around the world. We’ve developed three new images putting the spotlight on a pioneer of biotechnology, the rainbow papaya success story, and banana bacterial wilt research, and have asked three prominent leaders in the science and agriculture communities to tell their stories in blog posts on the GMO Answers Medium.com page.

- Why The GM Papaya Story Is Personal For This Hawaii Local – GMOs saved her family’s farm & state from devastation, which is why Joni Kamiya’s support of GM papayas is personal.
