Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Introduces the laws, regulations and agencies involved in registration of biotech crops, crop protectants, biological-based pesticides and growth regulators. US and International laws and regulations will be discussed from technical proof of concept through commercial release. The material covered in this course will provide students with a working knowledge of regulatory science and will be valuable to those seeking careers working either directly or indirectly in regulatory science in industry or governmental agencies including USDA, EPA and FDA.

Industry feedback indicates that agricultural science graduates would benefit from training and understanding of the regulatory system. The class is a result of information gathered from multiple meetings with about 20 industry personnel from several companies.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:


1. Describe the laws that pertain to regulating agricultural technologies.


2. Discuss the coordinated framework and the role of each regulatory agency within the framework.


3. Explain in detail the development pathway of both pesticides and genetically modified crops as the move from proof of concept through the regulatory system to commercialization.


4. Describe the types of toxicological and ecological studies required in the regulatory process


5. Relate global issues surrounding the use of pesticides and genetically modified crops to regulatory processes.
