International markets for genetic resources: opportunities for Colombia

By Antonio B. Hill


Abstract: In view of its relative biological wealth, the potential for developing Colombia’s capacity to develop genetic and biochemical resources – or, ‘bioresources ’ – as well as to provide such resources to a growing international biotechnology market merits serious consideration. In support of such capacities, this report focuses on: 1 recent and emerging trends within the international biotechnology market; 2 the interrelationships between the biotechnology market and commercial demand for genetic and biochemical materials from wild sources; and 3 a precedent-setting model and approach that Colombia can replicate consistent with its own needs to develop and engage in this market
