AgBioForum publishes articles reporting on current research. Both invited and submitted referred contributions are published. AgBioForum is committed to providing a space where academics, private and public sector analysts, and decision makers can present timely scientific evidence to enrich the ongoing public debate regarding the economic and social impacts of agricultural biotechnology. AgBioForum is financed by the Illinois Missouri Biotechnology Alliance. IMBA is supported by a Congressional Special Grant to provide funding for University biotechnology research. AgBioForum is offered free of charge, but membership is available.
