Description:

The purpose of the USDA Biotechnology Risk Assessment Grants (BRAG) Program is to assist Federal regulatory agencies in making science-based decisions about the effects of introducing genetically modified organisms into the environment. Investigations of effects on both managed and natural environments are relevant.
Applications to the USDA BRAG Program must seek partial funding for a conference or address one of the following areas:
1) Identify and develop practices to minimize risks associated with genetically engineered organisms;
2) Research methods to monitor the dispersal of genetically engineered organisms;
3) Research to increase knowledge about the characteristics, rates, and methods of gene transfer that may occur between genetically engineered organisms, and related organisms;
4) Perform assessments to provide analysis which compares impacts of organisms modified through genetic engineering to other types of production systems;
5) Other areas of research designed to further the purposes of the USDA BRAG program. See RFA for details.
