Sécurité de l'alimentation humaine et animale - Introduction Bienvenue sur le site de la "sécurité alimentaire", qui fait partie du site de la DG Santé et protection des consommateurs. L'objectif premier de la politique de la Commission européenne en matière de sécurité alimentaire est de garantir un niveau élevé de protection de la santé humaine et des intérêts des consommateurs dans le domaine alimentaire, tout en tenant compte de sa diversité, et notamment des produits traditionnels, et en assurant le fonctionnement efficace du marché intérieur. Le principe directeur de la Commission, défini principalement dans son Livre blanc sur la sécurité alimentaire, consiste à appliquer une approche intégrée de l'étable à la table couvrant l'ensemble des secteurs de la chaîne alimentaire, dont notamment la production d'aliments pour animaux, la production primaire, la transformation des denrées alimentaires, l'entreposage, le transport et la vente au détail.

MicrobeWiki MicrobeWiki is a free wiki resource on microbes and microbiology, authored by students at many colleges and universities. Curated pages such as those linked to the Taxonomy Index are reviewed and updated by microbiologists at Kenyon College. Student pages authored independently, or for coursework, are not monitored further. Interested readers are encouraged to add information, after registering a free account. Biotechnology Program Under Toxic Substances Control Act(TSCA) Under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA regulates the use of intergeneric microorganisms in commerce or commercial research. EPA considers intergeneric microorganisms to be those formed from organisms in different genera (genera is the plural of genus, which is a level in a taxonomic classification system based on the relatedness of organisms) or those microorganisms formed with synthetic DNA not from the same genus. EPA believes that intergeneric microorganisms have a sufficiently high likelihood of expressing new traits or new combinations of traits to be termed "new" and warrant EPA review.

Vaccine denialism Fears about vaccines were excusable when they were new, but present concerns are groundless. The Anti-vaccination movement (or vaccine hysteria) is an irrational trend of mistrust of vaccination that is almost as old as the technique itself. The movement (more mockingly referred to as "Anti-vaxxers") blame vaccines, or their ingredients, for a range of maladies whose mechanisms are rejected or have not been explained by current scientific research. Some of these maladies can often be childhood illnesses in order to increase the emotive factor of the argument. The ubiquity of vaccination often makes it an easy target for blame. History of Vaccine Schedule Every year since 1995 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has endorsed an annual childhood immunization schedule. Prior to 1995, these groups updated the immunization schedule every few years as needed. The first vaccines: Smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis Edward Jenner invented a method to protect against smallpox in 1796. The method involved taking material from a blister of someone infected with cowpox and inoculating it into another person’s skin; this was called arm-to-arm inoculation. However by the late 1940s, scientific knowledge had developed enough, so that large-scale vaccine production was possible and disease control efforts could begin in earnest.

Bacterial ID Lab at HHMI (Key) Original Document: Bacterial ID Lab at Howard Hughes Medical Institute Teacher Notes: This site can take a while to do, not recommended for one class period, most can be done at home. Also recommend that you go over the site with students when giving the assignment to familiarize them. This is an ADVANCED LAB, most basic freshman lever biology classes do not need to cover PCR techiques.

Autonome mobile biodiesel Traitement Bande-annonce Need A farm produced fuel that fits within crop rotations and provides for the flexibility and portability of diesel fuel, without the global infrastructure, while providing an energy balance that is similar or superior to draft power. The modular approach lends itself to easier open source modifications and iterations. The mobile approach enables a more flexible infrastructure. The cogeneration capability and on board air compressor enable the unit to operate as back up power for a farm operation as well as provide high volume shop air.
