This topic is of particular interest to the World Bank, which has long supported agricultural research through loans and credits to national programs and grants to international agricultural research centers, particularly those sponsored by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research. The Bank recognizes the continuing need for new technologies to accelerate agricultural development, especially for small farmers and poorer countries. The continuing success of the Bank's agricultural and rural development projects depends in part on the availability of such new technologies.

1). "Modern biotechnology" refers to recently developed techniques, notably those that make use of (1) recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) technology enables the essential genetic material in cells, DNA, to be manipulated; (2) monoclonal antibodies which are used to detect individual proteins produced by cells; and (3) new cell and tissue culture technology which includes novel bioprocessing techniques and which have made the rapid propagation of living cells possible. Together, these three processes constitute the basis of genetic engineering, and can be applied to microorganisms, plants, and animals (see Annex A for glossary of terms used in biotechnology).
