Its worldwide promise in the areas of human and animal health, the food supply, and the environment is staggering. It is said of biotechnology that its momentum is propelling us beyond society's ability to assimilate dimensions of biotechnology and to take a leading role to assure that its rapid development is understood, supported, and appropriately utilized. Participants in this Symposium assessed the scientific accomplishments of biotechnology, examined commercialization of biotechnology, including licensing and development of inventions and discoveries, and assessed biotechnology education throughout the world.
