SANTOS, Laymert Garcia dos. Disagreement or Misfit? Brazilian biotechnology faces socio and biodiversity.Translated byEoin Paul O'Neil. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0101-3300.
This essay questions the role played by biotechnologists in Brazil. It argues that indigenous and traditional peoples, environmentalists and civil society also need be taken into account. If the priorities of techno-science and the market are the only ones to prevail, it is already time to think about the possible 'collateral damage'.
