Biopharming panel sees way to protect health, advance work

A state committee on biopharming made final recommendations Monday on how to regulate crops designed to make drugs.

The 10-member group's meeting in Portland ended a year of work. Its report to Gov. Ted Kulongoski and the Legislature is designed to provide guidance on a bill expected to be introduced during the next several months.
