The ISBGMO is a unique opportunity for scientists from across the globe to share experiences and engage in open and meaningful dialogue about biosafety.
Participants include scientists involved in biosafety research and policy, including regulatory authorities, technology developers, academics, non-government organizations, and other credible stakeholders.
The discussion at this ISBGMO12 will be focused on a theme: CONSIDERING BIOSAFETY IN THE APPLICATION OF BIOTECHNOLOGY TO MEET THE CHANGING NEEDS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
Under this biosafety theme, presentations and posters in the sessions, mini-symposia, and workshops will address timely topics surrounding biosafety. The main topics for the five plenary sessions have been identified :
GM crops in Context
Current regulatory challenges
Defining environmental harm: concepts and applications for environmental risk assessment and regulatory decision-making
Biotechnology and crop improvement in development in developing countries: opportunities and challenges
New applications of modern biotechnology in agriculture and future implications
