Ecophysiological studies of Sclerocarya birrea (A. Rich) Hoschst as a genetic resource for poverty alleviation in arid and semiarid areas of Africa
Muok, B.O. [[n.d.]]
In order to determine tile genetic diversity witIlin different populations of S. birrea in , Kenya, leaf morphological characteristics and total genomic DNA on 92 and 61 leaf samples, respectively collected from 6 Kenyan populations and 2 Tanzanian populations were investigated. The genomic DNA was assayed with a random amplified polymorphic DNA RAPD) method using 10 random primers of 10 base ...

World Bank [2003-04]
The focus of this report is crop biotechnology, as developing countries are faced with evaluating genetically engineered plants for human, livestock, and environmental safety. These genetically engineered plants can potentially contribute to agricultural productivity in developing regions when appropriately deployed, but there is uncertainty about the potential for adverse consequences ...

Science, Technology, and Innovation : Capacity Building for Sustainable Growth and Poverty Reduction
Watkins, Alfred et al. 
The cases from the forum presented here capture the lessons from the science, technology, and innovation (STI) capacity building experiences of both developing and industrial countries (governments working in partnership with the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, academia, and development partners). These cases highlight ways that STI capacity building programs have enabled ...

New technologies associated with genetic engineering and commonly referred to as biotechnology are increasingly perceived to be so ground-breaking that their impact on farming, agriculture and food systems will far surpass that of the twentieth century industrial revolution. This article by ActionAid, printed in the Journal on Science and World Affairs, discusses and evaluates the potential im ...
