Biotechnology Information Centers

At the heart of the KC are Biotechnology Information Centers or BICs. They respond to specific information needs, promote and advance a broader public understanding of crop biotechnology and monitor the local agri-biotech environment. There are 19 fully operational national/regional nodes located in three continents.
