The NBII: Your Home for Biological Information on the Web

  • The NBII facilitated development of the United States Regulatory Agencies Unified Biotechnology Website, a publicly available resource that focuses on the agricultural products of modern biotechnology. The highlight is a searchable database which covers genetically engineered crop plants intended for food or feed that have completed all recommended or required reviews for food, feed or planting use in the United States.

  • The NBII's Great Basin Project is building an Internet map server that will demonstrate the human impacts to water, vegetation, and geologic resources in the shrubsteppe ecosystems of the American West.

  • Check out the revised and expanded Museums & Collections area of the NBII.

  • The NBII's Southern Appalachians Information Node has partnered with Tennessee-based Ipix to offer virtual tours of Southern Appalachian ecosystems. Zoom in or pan 360 degrees through the ecosystems of the Tennessee River Gorge, the Little Tennessee River, and Albright's Grove.

  • Read the latest issue of the NBII newsletter, Access.

NBII Partner in the Spotlight

The The Point Reyes Bird Observatory is partnering with the NBII's California Information Node to provide data on bird populations , particularly in riparian and floodplain areas. These data will be used in conjuction with information gathered in the CALFED Bay-Delta Program project, one of the biggest large river and riparian area restoration projects in the nation, which focuses on waterways created at the junction of the San Francisco Bay and the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers.

Hot Topic Site

The Chronic Wasting Disease Alliance is a coalition of non-profit wildlife and hunting groups committed to providing timely, scientifically accurate information regarding chronic wasting disease, its impacts on wildlife and humans, and recommendations for its control. In addition to news, occurrence maps, print-ready resources, and guidance for hunters, the Web site also tracks federal, state, and provincial legislation and policy related to CWD.
