Title: Industry involvement in Antarctic bioprospecting / United Nations University.
Author (corporate): United Nations University.
Date: 2004.
Publisher: Tokyo: United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies
Abstract: Examines involvement of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in Antarctic bioprospecting, drawing primarily on interviews with industry representatives and academics, and records found in publicly available patent databases.
