The AgBioWorld Foundation is headquartered
in Auburn, Alabama, and is run by Professor C.S. Prakash of Tuskegee University.
The AgBioWorld community was established in January 2000 by Professor
Prakash and Gregory Conko of the Competitive
Enterprise Institute, and the foundation and AgBioView
e-mail service rely upon the volunteer efforts of many friends and colleagues.
AgBioWorld aims to provide science-based information on agricultural
biotechnology issues to various stakeholders across the world. Its website
and e-mail service are a daily source of information for thousands of
subscribers from dozens of countries. The AgBioWorld 'Declaration
in Support of Agricultural Biotechnology' has been endorsed by over
3,400 scientists, including 25
Nobel Laureates such as Dr. Norman Borlaug, Dr. James Watson, Dr.
Arthur Kornberg, Dr. Marshall Nirenberg, Dr. Peter Doherty, Dr. Paul Berg,
Mr. Oscar Arias Sanchez and Dr. John Boyer.

The success of AgBioWorld has been widely recognized by the media as
over hundreds of newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times,
Washington Post, International Herald Tribune, Financial Times, Chicago
Tribune, Chronicle of Higher Education, The Scientist, Science, Nature,
and Nature Biotechnology and South China Morning Post have reported on
this initiative. Governor Tom Vilsack of Iowa praised AgBioWorld during
a governors' conference, while Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Norman Borlaug
has frequently commended Dr. Prakash's efforts in his writings and lectures.
Senator Christopher Bond also has acknowledged Dr. Prakash's initiatives
in biotechnology during a Senate floor discussion and placed Prakash's
