The Basics of Plant Biotechnology

URL:www.monsanto.co.uk/primer/basics.html
  • Educational material, news
  • Not comprehensive enough
When it comes to plant biotechnology, it doesn’t get much bigger than Monsanto, so this is a logical place to start. The pages are organized efficiently. The Biotech Primer section provides basic educational material on biotechnology. A more interesting section for scientists is the Biotech Knowledge Center that provides mostly news, a glossary of biotechnology terms, and a Topic Library. The last section contains only five different topics, however, with each topic containing many links to articles. The focus of these is largely on the benefits of biotechnology from an industry perspective. Overall, the Monsanto site is informative but not comprehensive enough.
