Special Issue "Sustainable Economics of Biotechnology"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019)
Advances in the biological sciences result in new technologies and services that facilitate response to changing food systems and provide new opportunities for the development of the bioeconomy. There is a need to better understand governance, policies and regulations and economic implications under this changing reality. Understanding these changes is important to improve policy responses contributing to sustainable development.
Against this backdrop, there has still been limited research on the contribution of recent developments in the field of biotechnology for sustainable development. This Special Issue invites submissions on "Sustainable Economics of Biotechnology" addressing a combination of biotechnology such as genomics (e.g., gene editing, gene drive) and related economic and policy issues. In particular, contributions to the 2018 ICABR conference are invited for submission.
