Abstract: The Internet portal provides up-to-date clear and intelligible information about current and past biosafety research into genetically modified plants in Germany. The focus is on projects supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The sections ‘Maize’, ‘Grain’, ‘Potatoes’, ‘Oilseed rape’, ‘Woody plants’, ‘Monitoring’ and ‘Gene transfer’ provide comprehensive basic information about the key BMBF-funded research areas. A database with summaries of research topics, methods and results (‘Database’) is supplemented by exciting insights into the everyday working lives of researchers (‘Science live’), background reports on individual topics (‘Focus’) and news stories on everything to do with biological safety research both in Germany and at international level (‘News’). The ‘Debate’ section is designed to enliven the discussion about green genetic engineering by offering new perspectives and surprising points of view – this section regularly presents interesting texts on scientifically and socially relevant topics. There is also a glossary with key terms, a photo database and a schools portal (German only) with suggestions for teachers. [Information of the supplier]
The site is being developed as part of the collaborative project on Communications management in biological safety research commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
