The Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MoSTI) is set to commission a biotechnology and biosafety think tank in a fortnight. This was arrived at during a consultative meeting with biotechnology stakeholders, chaired by MoSTI Minister Hon. Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye.

The idea was mooted by Prof. David Kabasa the Principal of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Biosecurity at Makerere University. It was assent to by the minister and chair of the session, before it was unanimously adopted by an audience comprising MPs, researchers and media.

Biotechnology benefits in agriculture continue to elude most people; this inspired the establishment the think tank.
