Advances in biotechnology in the 20th century offer promises of technological innovation in a wide array of applications, viz., agriculture, health, environment and energy. With rapid technological development, the potential applications of biotechnology will be beyond estimation. Keeping pace with technological development, more legal issues disputes and challenges concerning biotechnology have been witnessed. BioLaw issues cover growing areas of intellectual property, environmental law, human right, and most importantly biodiversity law. In Thailand the knowledge of legal aspects and management is critically lagging behind.
Recognizing the importance of biolaw knowledge, BIOTEC established BioLaw Research Section (BRS) in 2008. The BRS aims to conduct legal and policy studies with the focus on legal management of bioresources and intellectual property management. BIOTEC hopes that the newly developed BioLaw knowledge will be useful for biotechnology research organizations.
