About the Manual Videotapes

Videotape Lectures to accompany the Manual for Assessing Ecological and Human Health Effects of Genetically Engineered  Organisms and demonstrate use of the Manual's flowcharts - available in both PAL and NTSC formats.

In separate video lectures, two of the Manual's authors introduce the Manual and walk through an example of using its flowcharts to assess potential ecological effects of particular genetically engineered organisms.

Dr. Anne Kapuscinski, of the University of Minnesota Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology and the Institute for Social, Economic and Ecological Sustainability, considers hypothetical large scale release of a genetically modified salmon and Dr. Norman Ellstrand, of the University of California-Riverside Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, considers a hypothetical maize genetically modified to express an industrial chemical.

Single sets of the videotapes are made available at no cost to international biosafety training organizations and to biosafety focal  points, trainers, and researchers in G-77 countries and in Central and  Eastern Europe. All others are asked to reimburse the costs of tape duplication, handling, and mailing.
