The abstracts of the meeting were published in the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry,Supplement 17C, 1993 (JSSN 0730-2312). The purpose of the meeting was to bring together the leading scientists and engineers in the diverse area to further dialogue between those conducting basic mechanistic research and those designing fieldable systems, within the context of policy guidelines. The meeting was attended by 110 participants representing industry, academia, and government institutions, from 11 countries on 5 continents. To accomplish the goals of the symposium, the talks were arranged broadly into sessions covering basic molecular genetics, microbial physiology and biochemistry, applications and engineering systems, fate and effects and monitoring, and policy guidelines. In addition, there were poster sessions throughout the week
