Biotechnology Risk Assessment Research Grants Program

The purpose of the USDA Biotechnology Risk Assessment Grants (BRAG) Program is to assist
Federal regulatory agencies in making science
-
based decisions about the effects of introducing
genetically modif
ied organisms into the environment. Investigations of effects on both managed
and natural environments are relevant. Applications to the USDA BRAG Program must seek
partial funding for a conference or address one of the following areas: 1) Identify and dev
elop
practices to minimize risks associated with genetically engineered organisms; 2) Research
methods to monitor the dispersal of genetically engineered organisms; 3) Research to increase
knowledge about the characteristics, rates, and methods of gene tra
nsfer that may occur
between genetically engineered organisms, and related organisms; 4) Perform assessments to
provide analysis which compares impacts of organisms modified through genetic engineering to
other types of production systems; 5) Other areas o
f research designed to further the purposes
of the USDA BRAG program. See RFA for details.
