dc.description.abstract26 percent of Canadian core biotechnology companies are devoted to agricultural biotechnology, compared with five percent in the United States. Their activities include the use of microorganisms, plant cells to create commercially viable products, and transformation of plants to improve specific qualities. Their goals are to increase the world’s food supply, enable crops and animals to resist pests and diseases, increase the nutritional content of food, and improve production efficiency, while at the same time improving the environment.
