The Developing Country Reactions to Biomedical Techniques and Plant Biotechnology: The Tunisian Experience

Received16 Jan 2004
Accepted18 Mar 2004

Abstract

In the present study we present the conditions offered to biotechnology development in Tunisia and we compare three main biotechnology applications which raise ethical and health problems: organ transplant, assisted reproductive techniques, and genetically modified organisms. We try to identify factors that have allowed success of the first two applications and failure of the latter. Conditions offered to biotechnology in other African countries are also discussed.
