The National Academies provide a broad range of material for both the general public and for specialists in the scientific research community. Biosecurity at the National Academies brings together materials dealing with "biosecurity, biodefense, relevant aspects of public health, and broader discussions of the relationship between science and security." The site contains literature and information about ongoing projects and activities within sections that include "What's New," "Biosecurity 101," and "Academies Reports & Activities." First-time visitors might do well to peruse the "Understanding Biosecurity" booklet, a nice primer on the topic. The "What's New" section includes featured reports, projects, and information on upcoming conferences and talks. The "Biosecurity 101" area contains a brief summary about the scholarly and philosophical challenges surrounding this area of concern. Finally, the "Academies Reports & Activities" area includes hundreds of reports contained within five categories, including public health and education.
