President Barack Obama’s administration has begun reviewing suggestions for a strategic plan or National Bioeconomy Blueprint detailing measures by which the Obama administration intends to apply biological research innovations toward national challenges that include health, food, energy, and the environment. The administration’s Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) posted on its website that it received 134 submissions to a formal Request for Information (RFI) between October 7 and the December 6 deadline. Responses came from a cross-section of industry and professional groups focused on the life sciences, as well as biotech and pharma companies, research institutions, universities, and individuals. What do you think of the suggestions made?
