Information Systems for Biotechnology :
Provides information about environmentally responsible use of agricultural biotechnology products. Here you will find documents and searchable
databases pertaining to the development, testing and regulatory review of genetically modified plants, animals and microorganisms.
Biotechnology - Int'l Information Programs, U.S. State Dept.
President Clinton says the real issue in the debate over genetically modified foods is not the interests of agribusiness companies
versus food safety or biodiversity, but rather how to get the best food to the largest number of people at the lowest possible price.
Yeast Rises to a New Occasion : Genetically engineered yeast
will make it possible to substantially lower the cost of producing ethanol on a large scale.
FAO: Biotechnology in Food and Agriculture : Biotech for the Third World. What can
agricultural biotechnology offer developing countries? A lively discussion on everything from animal cloning to terminator technology and trees,
livestock forumand fish.
GrayLIT Network : Want to find out what federal researchers have learned about using bugs to
clean up toxic waste, or see which agency funds the most research on stem cells? Access more than 100,000 full-text technical reports from several Federal agencies.
Weeds Can Inherit Long-lived Genes : U.S. scientists
say crops can pass on to related weeds genetic traits that persist for six generations or more. It's inevitable that these and other fitness-related
traits will make their way into weed populations
BioInformatics Guide : Biotechnology is branch of biology
that utilizes living organisms in engineering, technology, and medicine. These applications use living organisms to develop advance tools and products.
Modern and traditional biotechnologies differ in their process. Manipulation of genes and placing these genes in organisms is modern biotechnology.
Traditional biotechnology focuses on fermentation. Biotechnology research has relevance in the medical, agricultural, environment, and the non-food industrial areas.
