THE BIOTECHNOLOGY ACTION PROGRAMME (BAP) HAS SUPPORTED THE SECTORS ON SECOND GENERATION BIOREACTORS, ON GENETIC ENGINEERING - COVERING THE WHOLE RANGE OF METHODS APPLYING TO ANIMAL HUSBANDRY, VETERINARY MEDICINE, PLANT IMPROVEMENT, CROP PROTECTION, BENEFICIAL SOIL MICRO-ORGANISMS - AND ON RISK ASSESSMENT. NEW DOMAINS INCLUDE CONTEXTUAL MEASURES FOR THE POOLING AND IMPROVEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURES FOR R&D (STORAGE AND TREATMENT OF BIOLOGICAL DATA, COLLECTIONS OF BIOTIC MATERIALS), AS WELL AS SPECIFIC PROJECTS FOR PROTEIN DESIGN, THE APPLICATIONS OF GENETIC ENGINEERING TO INDUSTRIAL MICRO-ORGANISMS, THE DEVELOPMENT AND UPSCALING OF NOVEL METHODS FOR IN VITRO CELL CULTURES. A SPECIAL EFFORT IS ALSO BEING INITIATED IN THE AREA OF IN VITRO SYSTEMS FOR THE SCREENING AND ASSESSMENT OF PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES AND TOXICOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF NEW MOLECULES. ONE DEVELOPMENT, RESULTING FROM GRADUAL INTEGRATION OF RESEARCH IN THE FRAMEWORK OF 93 TRANSNATIONAL PROJECTS, IS THE CONSTITUTION OF MULTIPARTNER EUROPEAN LABORATORIES WITHOUT WALLS (ELWWS), WITH PROVISIONS FOR EXCHANGES AND WITH DIVISION OF TASKS.
