SERDANG: Biosafety, bioethics and biosecurity are big words even for scientists.
The policies, regulations and their implementation still remain elusive to scientists and other stakeholders.

To create awareness on these areas, last month the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences of Universiti Putra Malaysia organised a seminar on these topics for scientists and post-graduate students.

The seminar was supported by the National Bioethics Council, Ministry of Science, Technology Innovation, Department of Biosafety, and the Medical Biotechnology Research Group.
