In the context of the third Framework Programme, the Commission makes a call for proposals for the specific programme of research and technology development in the field of biotechnology (BIOTECH, 1990-1994). Proposals for RTD projects and concerted actions are sought in accordance with the outline workprogramme: - (Area 1) Molecular approaches: Protein structure and function; gene structure; expression of genes. - (Area 2) Cellular and organism approaches: Cellular regeneration, reproduction and development of living organisms (animals, plants, in vitro developmental toxicology); metabolism of animals, plants and microbes (essential physiological traits); communication systems within living matter (human and veterinary vaccines, in-vitro immunotoxicology, in-vitro human immune responses, neurobiology). - (Area 3) Ecology and population biology: Ecological implications of biotechnology, conservation of genetic resources, rapid moleculargenetic screening methods, taxonomy, preservation and exploration of diversity. - Information infrastructure. Consortia of organizations eligible to participate are invited to submit proposals for the above areas and topics. All correspondence should be sent to the address given. Detailed information on submission procedures, contracts, and background material on research topics is available on request from the Commission's Offices in the Member States, or from: Commission of the European Communities Ref: Biotechnology Call for Proposals DG XII, Directorate F 200 rue de la Loi B-1049 Brussels Tel. +32-2-2350361; +32-2-2355365
