Brazil and Australia to co-operate on agbiotech

Brazilian and Australian researchers are discussing potential deals on agricultural biotechnology issues. Among the issues to be considered for co-operation are: agricultural nanobiotechnology; tools for the conservation and genetic improvement of plants; genomes and bioinformation; and genomes and the development of plants. One of the factors influencing the co-operation is the similar climatic conditions of the two countries, Mauro Carneiro of the Embrapa international relations office says. The Australian interest is driven by Brazil’s status as a major food producer, while Brazil is interested in Australia’s “major impact” research. Scientists from the two countries met last month at the agbiotech and genetic resources facilities of the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa.
