A Practical Guide to Containment: Plant Biosafety in Research Greenhouses

This publication that can be viewed either online or in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format is new from Information Systems for Biotechnology (ISB), part of the US Department of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service. ISB's goal is to provide "a balanced view of the potential benefits and concerns" of agricultural biotechnology. This 60-page guide is intended as a resource for greenhouses that conduct research involving genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Helping them understand the practical and regulatory implications of handling GMOs, the Web siteoffers guidance on levels of biosafety containment, strategies for containment, proper handling of GMOs, and more. Written plainly and easy to navigate, the guide is a useful resource.
