In this issue, we have a paper on the future of gene patents by Gavin Recchia, and a full report by Mark Christensen and Ben Johnston on the New Zealand Royal Commission on Genetic Modification. We also have the first of our series of profiles of Corporate Members of AusBiotech. The association now has 84 corporate members, as well as 593 individual members and 57 student members.
We have held over until our next issue the third part of our Special Feature on Fermentation and Bioprocessing. Key papers will not be available to us for another few weeks. We apologise to any readers anticipating the third part of that special feature.
