This Glossary of biotechnology for food and agriculture is a revised and augmented version of the Glossary of biotechnology and genetic engineering published by FAO in 1999. It provides a consolidated, comprehensive, up-to-date and accessible list of terms and acronyms that are used regularly in biotechnology and its application to food and agriculture. It is intended to provide a convenient reference source for researchers, students and technicians, particularly those whose native language is not English. The Glossary can also be of value in discussions at intergovernmental level.
