Program for Biosafety Systems Launches New Website

October 12, 2011

The Program for Biosafety Systems (PBS), which is facilitated by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), launched a new website during its annual meeting in Warrenton, VA last month. The website is a one-stop-shop for information on the responsible development and use of biotechnology in the developing world. It provides information on PBS’ two regions of focus—Africa and Asia—and provides tools and resources—including easy-to-download copies of its publications— for policymakers throughout the world. Members of the extensive PBSteam (read their bios on the website) journeyed from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America for the four-day meeting, during which PBS laid out its plans for 2012. Check the website for regular updates about its progress in the development of effective biosafety systems.
