Biowire, based in Toronto, is a global network of concerned individuals, educators and scientists who wish to engage the public about developments in the life sciences, with a particular focus on biotechnology and nanotechnology.

In, we monitor, examine, evaluate, inform and offer opinion on research and applications in the life sciences, and consider their impacts on our food, health, agriculture, environment and culture. We look at biotechnologies and nanotechnologies "under the microscope" and in the contexts where they are applied, taking a special interest in the ethical implications and potential ecological consequences of scientific progress in this realm.

Update July 2006: The site is under development. If you would like to contribute, please contact
