Abstract

Biotechnology has been applied as one of the eco-techno-political technologies in the 21 st century. Many countries have developed their technological strategies to improve their productivity in different fields. As Malaysia embarks on its drive to pursue biotechnology as one of the new income sources of the nation, biosafety and the safe transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms (LMOs) has become increasingly important. Biosafety ensure the potential adverse impact of modern biotechnology is minimised and managed in a manner that does not have a negative impact on biodiversity and human health. The aim of this paper is to review the current need for biosafety education in Malaysia and the strategies proposed for biosafety education.
