The case of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) maize in Egypt presents a unique perspective on the role of trust in agricultural biotechnology (agbiotech) public-private partnerships (PPPs). This is especially relevant given the recent pro-democracy uprisings that spread throughout the Arab world that have significantly impacted the current political climate and status of both the public and private. The overall goal of this workshop is to examine what was initially called "Opportunities for Marine Biotechnology in the United States," to consider where we are now in this field of "Environmental Marine Biotechnology," to envision the field in the future, and to discuss any impediments that might be encountered along the way.

Impacts The major outcomes of this project have focused on gaining a more thorough, multi-disciplinary understanding of the bases for public awareness, perceptions, and acceptance of food biotechnology in the U.S. and turning that knowledge into information useful to stakeholders in government, industry, agriculture, academia, and among the.

Marine biotechnology has demonstrated its potential across a broad spectrum of applications that range from biomedicine to the environment. Nevertheless, despite noteworthy successes (Tables 1–3) and the inherent promise of the ocean's vast biological and chemical diversity, marine biotechnology has not yet matured into an economically significant field. Fun-damental knowledge is lacking in. This paper looks at the public awareness and concerns over biotechnology expressed in surveys around the world, discussing the implications for education and information.

The Public Understanding of Biotechnology Programme, established in , sought to advance awareness and understanding, but not specifically to promote biotechnology. For this reason, to benchmark public understanding in this regard, the first survey was commissioned in line with Statisics South Africa processes. In the book, I describe and compare the career experiences of people who went to work for Baxter versus Abbott and suggest that the combination of "Cs" that constituted Abbott's career imprint could be called a "functional career imprint." Baxter generated a disproportionate number of leaders in the biotechnology industry.
