Profitability, Access, and Risk: the Keys to Biotechnology in Developing Countries David Zilberman, University of California EEP101/econ125

Slide 2

What is biotechnology? Biotechnology is applying devices of sub-atomic and cell science to issues of wellbeing, rural and mechanical creation, and nature. It is a subsidiary of the disclosure of the structure of DNA in 1955 that reformed science. Procedures of biotechnology incorporate cloning, hereditarily adjusted assortments, hereditary screening, USDA Definition: Agricultural biotechnology is an accumulation of logical strategies, including hereditary designing, that are utilized to make, enhance, or alter plants, creatures, and microorganisms. Utilizing traditional methods, for example, particular reproducing, researchers have been attempting to enhance plants and creatures for human advantage for many years. Cutting edge procedures now empower researchers to move qualities (and along these lines attractive characteristics) in ways they couldn\'t before - and without hardly lifting a finger and accuracy.

Slide 3

Lessons of therapeutic biotechnology real applications as far as medications, diagnostics, and creation of materials (like insulin). The business developed around the colleges. Many real innovations were created in colleges and exchanged to organizations. Cases: Genentech was begun by researchers in Stanford and UCSF. Amgene by researchers from UC San Diego, and Chiron by researchers at U.C. Berkeley. Procedure of innovation exchange from colleges to the private part now and again advanced exchange of innovation to a start-up. The startup either developed to wind up distinctly a noteworthy organization or was assumed control by Big Pharma.

Slide 4

The Promise of Biotechnology Combating human sicknesses Promoting human wellbeing - Researchers are making approaches to support the nutritious estimation of nourishments utilizing biotechnology. Battling creature infections - Biotechnology delivered an immunization that ensures creatures in the wild against rabies and an antibody for "shipping fever" of dairy cattle, the greatest enemy of meat cows in feedlots. Battling hunger by opposing plant sicknesses and expanding crop yields - Biotechnology can help ranchers increment edit yields and encourage considerably more individuals. For instance, by expanding zones where harvests can develop and battling crop sicknesses. Helping nature by lessening pesticide utilize - Biotechnology can help ranchers decrease their dependence on bug sprays and herbicides.

Slide 5

Types of Agbiotech 1) nuisance control biotech, including imperviousness to bugs (bT corn), and imperviousness to pesticides (Roundup prepared soybean). Yield-expanding assortments that are not bug control related. For instance, dry spell tolerant assortments. Quality upgrading assortments that incorporate longer timeframe of realistic usability, better taste 4) Nutritionally-enhanced nourishment (cholesterol free egg) 5) Fine chemicals and materials (silk, natural plastic, oils)

Slide 6

The Slow Evolution of Agbiotech While the primary utilization of therapeutic biotech were in the 1980s, the commercialization of ag biotech happened in the late 1990s. There are a few reasons:  In ag biotech, one manages numerous species, in restorative biotech, with one species.  There is a much bigger ability to pay for medications than for sustenance.  There is more resistance for hazard when it come to generation of restorative than nourishment. Besides, ag biotech is delivered in the field, and requires additional care. Significantly more research cash has been dispensed to prescription than yields

Slide 8

Early Application of Agbiotech Early use of agbiotech incorporates Bt and Roundup prepared embedded assortments in real field crops (corn, soybeans, tobacco) Virus safe papaya, and FlavorSaver Tomatoes. The Bt assortments for the most part lessen pesticide use in the U.S., yet don\'t influence yield. There have been some float of hereditary material towards wild corn. There are a few markers of resistance-development.

Slide 9

The Case for Agbiotech presents open doors for natural quality change and is a wellspring of hazard. With great administration, it has an essential part later on of agribusiness. A great part of the estimation of agbiotech is in the creating scene. There is a major level headed discussion whether it is fitting there. It will be tended to beneath.

Slide 10

Attitudes toward Agbiotech There has been huge resistance for the presentation of agbiotech, particularly in Europe. Agbiotech involves saw dangers, however advantage to shoppers of the early applications are non-evident. There is absence of trust in government confirmation, and in innovation in Europe, particularly after frantic dairy animals infection. Agbiotechnology might be contradicted in a roundabout way by people that advantage from substitute items. E.g. pesticide makers.

Slide 11

Presumed Points of Failure Productivity : Biotechnology expects to tackle issues of the North; won\'t have any kind of effect in the South. Get to : Biotechnology is controlled by organizations; won\'t be open on achievable terms to poor workers. Dangers : Damage to environment and human wellbeing, sullying of local hereditary materials, and loss of harvest biodiversity

Slide 12

Productivity: Yield-Increasing Potential Yield = potential yield x (1 - harm) harm = f (bug, bug control) Combination of high nuisance weight and negligible existing utilization of vermin control  potential for yield-expanding impact Attractive elements of irritation control farming biotechnologies Simplicity of utilization Reduction being used of chemicals or work

Slide 13

Productivity: Evidence for Bt Cotton Gains Bt cotton in: United States: yield impact 0 – 15% China: yield impact 10% South Africa: yield impact 20%-40% India: yield impact 60 – 80 % In each nation have diminishment in compound use

Slide 14

The Impact of Bt Cotton in India Bt cotton is utilized to give imperviousness to the American bollworm ( Helicoverpa armigera) . The innovation was produced by Monsanto and was presented as a team with the Maharashtra Hybrid Seed Company (Mahyco). Field trials with these Bt half breeds have been done since 1997 and, for the 2002/03 developing season, the innovation was financially endorsed by the Indian experts.

Slide 15

Our review For our examination, we utilize information from on-homestead field trials that were completed amid the 2001/02 developing season as a component of the administrative technique. In 2001, field trials were completed on 395 homesteads in seven conditions of India. These trials were started by Mahyco and administered by the administrative experts.

Slide 16

Experimental outline Three nearby 646 m 2 plots were planted: the first with a Bt cotton mixture, the second with a similar cross breed however without the Bt quality (non-Bt partner), and the third with an alternate half breed regularly utilized as a part of the specific area (well known check). Every one of the three plots were overseen by the ranchers themselves, taking after standard practices. This setup permits diminishing the impacts of contrasts in agroecological conditions and administrative capacities when making innovative correlations .

Slide 17

The genuine information source notwithstanding the consistent trial records, more far reaching data was gathered for 157 homesteads on agronomic viewpoints and ranch and family qualities. Perceptions from these 157 ranches constitute the information reason for this investigation. They cover 25 locale in three noteworthy cotton-delivering states—Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh in Central India and Tamil Nadu in the South. Plot-level info and yield information were extrapolated to 1 hectare to encourage examinations.

Slide 18

Results Bt cross breeds were splashed three circumstances less frequently against bollworms than the ordinary half and halves. By and large, bug spray sums on Bt cotton plots were diminished by very nearly 70%, which is steady with studies from different nations. At normal pesticide measures of 1.6 kg/ha (dynamic fixings) on the ordinary trial plots, trim harm in 2001/02 was around 60%. Bt does not totally wipe out bug related yield misfortunes.

Slide 19

Results II Average yields of Bt crossovers surpassed those of non-Bt partners and neighborhood checks by 80% and 87%, individually. 2001/02 was a season with high bollworm weight in India, so normal yield impacts will be fairly lower in years with less vermin issues.

Access Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Registrations

Slide 24

Access: Biotechnologies in the South Most IP is produced by research in the North Transfer of open segment\'s rights to the private division gives motivating forces to advancement and commercialization Companies have minimal motivator to put resources into applications particular toward the South

Slide 25

Access: Biotechnologies in the South Companies will give advances for use in South; great PR Companies stress over risk, exchange costs Universities with rights to innovation will likewise be interested in exchanging to South applications Needed institutional intercession: IP clearinghouse

Slide 26

Access: Objectives of clearinghouse for IPR Reduce seek expenses to distinguishing set of advances available Reduce exchange cost for the commercialization of developments Increase straightforwardness about responsibility for Provide components to oversee arrangement of access to IPR Improve innovation exchange instruments and practices (for the most part in broad daylight segment foundation)

Slide 27

Access: Model of a clearinghouse for IPR Member associations IP suppliers: Non-part associations Direct permitting exchanges Assignment, permit, or alternative for full or restricted fields of utilization "Re-bundling" Pooled sub-authorizing Single patent sub-authorizing IP clients: Non-part IP clients Non-part IP clients Member association IP clients
