IMPULSE TO EUROPEAN COOPERATIVE RESEARCH IN THE FIELD OF AGRICULTURAL MICROORGANISMS (INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME FOR INTERACTIVE MICROBES)
The Biomolecular Engineering Programme (BEP) for the European Communities has been the focus for intense activities in genetic engineering of species relevant to agriculture and agro-food production during the last four years (1982 - 1986). For the years ahead, the European Commission will maintain its support for cooperative research in the same fields through the implementation of the new Biotechnology Action Programme (BAP : 1985 - 1989). The application of genetic engineering to symbiotic or pathogenic microorganisms remains therefore a major focusing point, because of the economic challenges it brings to agriculture, but also for its potential capacity to unravel many aspects of plant molecular biology.
