About AgBioWorld

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.

AgBioWorld's free electronic newsletter, AgBioView, is a "must read" source of news, research updates and commentary for anyone interested in the latest on advances in plant science, agricultural research and sustainable food production.

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 op-ed column from the Atlanta Journal Constitution 'Foes of Biotechnology Ignore Global Hunger' in the Congressional record.
