Biosecurity Engagement Program Projects
|The Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Biosecurity Engagement Program (BEP) projects, funded by the US Departments of State and Defense, address disease problems abroad that threaten the US. The idea is that by helping other nations deal with serious pathogens within their borders, the US will understand how to prevent these pathogens from entering and attacking the US.|
