ABSTRACT

Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering: Implications for the Development of New Warfare Agents   [open pdf - 101KB]

This report addresses the following issues and provides the basis for more detailed discussion of funding and program priorities, particularly in the area of medical biological defense research: the national security threats posed by such potential developments of new agents through advances in biotechnology and genetic engineering; recommendations related to reducing the impact of progress in these areas; the utility of increased emphasis on research and development of medical countermeasures related to mid-term or far-term biowarfare threat agents; and other measures that could reduce the threat of these technological advances and reduce the threat of biological agent and weapons proliferation.
