Highly Recommended Spanish-English Bilingual Web Site on Biotech & Sustainable Ag

The Puerto Rico Project on Biosafety's blog ( is the only bilingual English-Spanish online resource devoted to critical perspectives on biotechnology- as well as closely related subjects like intellectual property rights, nanotechnology, biopiracy and sustainable agroecological alternatives.

In the last few days we gave the blog an overhaul. You'll notice it has a brand new look, plus most items are now tagged, which means that searches can now be made by subject, country and author. Tags include "Terminator", "Mexico", "Africa", "Synthetic Biology", "rBGH", "biofuels", "corn" and "soy".

The Puerto Rico Project on Biosafety needs your support! We are a small but determined action team/task force, a bilingual, multicultural endeavor to educate the people of the Americas on the issues of biotechnology, particularly genetically engineered organisms and products.
