ISAAA releases '50 Biotech Bites'


The International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications (ISAAA) recently released an electronic book (e-book) entitled 50 Biotech Bites. The e-book contains 50 topics relevant to the science, applications, and issues behind agricultural biotechnology. It is based on pocket-sized publications called Pockets K or Pockets of Knowledge which have been developed by ISAAA for the last 15 years. Each topic is discussed using "bite-sized" information to "feed" hungry minds and engage with others on the technology to make informed decisions about its adoption and use.

About the ISAAA

The ISAAA is a not-for-profit international organization that shares the benefits of crop biotechnology to various stakeholders, particularly resource-poor farmers in developing countries, through knowledge sharing initiatives and the transfer and delivery of proprietary biotechnology applications. 

ISAAA's global knowledge sharing network and partnerships in the research and development continuum, provide a powerful combination of science-based information and appropriate technology to those who need to make informed decisions about their acceptance and use. In addition, an array of support services completes the holistic approach to agricultural development and ensures effective implementation and timely delivery of crop biotechnologies. These services include capacity building for policy makers and scientists; regulatory oversight on such issues as biosafety and food safety; impact assessment, and science communication.

The ISAAA South East Asia Center is currently based at the International Rice Research Institute, Los Baños, Laguna.
