The same technologies also have important potential applications to address problems of poverty reduction, food security, environmental conservation and trade competitiveness in developing countries (Tzotzos and Skryabin, 2000; US National Academy of Sciences, 2000). Scientific advances Further scientific advances will probably result in crops with a wider range of traits, some of which are likely to be of more direct interest to consumers – for example, by having traits that confer improved nutritional quality in food.

New diagnostics and vaccines are being widely adopted for the diagnosis, prevention and control of fish and livestock diseases. Harnessing the full power of the genetic revolution requires going beyond these early applications of modern biotechnology and recognizing the power of the new revolution in genomics and associated technologies as aids for genetic improvement. The new technologies enable greatly increased efficiency of selection for useful genes, based on knowledge of the biology of the organism, the function of specific genes and their role in regulating particular traits.

The first complete sequence of a plant genome – the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana – is now completed (Arabidopsis Genome Initiative, 2000). J. Persley completion. The new scientific discipline of genomics has arisen, which has contributed to powerful new approaches to identify the structure and functions of genes and their applications in human health, agriculture and the environment. These new discoveries and their commercial applications have helped to promote the biotechnology industry, mainly in North America and Europe.
