Title: BioPortal Canada
Url: http://bioportal.gc.ca/english/BioPortalhome.asp
Publisher: Canada. Health Canada
Description: Canada is fast becoming a biotechnology hub, and the Canadian government has created this site as a clearinghouse of information both about biotechnology in general and about the various governmental strategies they have adopted in order to encourage development in this area. The materials on the site are divided into five sections: "BioGateway," "BioBasics," "BioStrategy," "BioRegulations," and "BioGov." Laypeople may wish to start their exploration of the site at the "BioBasics" section. Here they can learn about the various types of biotechnology and their applications in the environment, food production, and as a form of sustainable development. The "BioGateway" area is geared towards those persons who might want to know more about how the Canadian government is attempting to coordinate and encourage biotechnology across the nation. It's worth noting that visitors can also sign up for email updates on the site.
