    Promoting scientifically sound research that supports biosafety assessment by improving communication among scientists who study plants, animals, and microbes with new characteristics due to altered DNA and produced using modern biotechnology.

    ISBR activities are intended to be as broadly interdisciplinary as possible, covering the entire spectrum of pertinent research, from strictly molecular laboratory studies to field studies to socioeconomic aspects of field deployment of GMOs.

     
  •  
     

    By fostering communication and technical exchange among experts, ISBR supports the development of the science used in biosafety assessment processes and promotes constructive dialogue on important science-based biosafety issues associated with GMOs.

     

The mission of ISBR is to promote the practice and application of science in the fields of agricultural biotechnology and environmental risk analysis. In particular ISBR aims to encourage research which supports the safe and effective use of biotechnology in agriculture and food production and assists the development of the relevant policy and regulation.
