International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology

The International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) was established in 1987 by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) to promote the safe use of biotechnology world-wide and with special regard to the needs of the developing world. In 1995 it became a fully autonomous international organization composed of 41 member states. It has two main laboratories: one in Trieste, Italy, and one in New Delhi, India. It also hosts a network of 27 Affiliated Centres, which are national laboratories of member states. It sponsors both basic and applied research, including the production of novel malaria and hepatitis vaccines, the study of human pathogenic viruses, the study of human genetic diseases, and the genetic manipulation of plants. In 1995, ICGEB and UNIDO created BINAS (Biosafety Information Network and Advisory Service) to monitor global developments in regulatory issues in biotechnology. In 1998, the Centre added the ICGEB Biosafety WebPages, which are totally dedicated to biosafety and risk assessment for the environmental release of genetically modified organisms. Also in 1998, the Centre began publishing biosafety, a bibliography of scientific articles on the main topics of concern about the environmental release of genetically modified organisms.
