The Innovative Regional Growth Core "BioOK" aims to establish the region Rostock-Schwerin - especially the AgroBioTechnikum Groß Lüsewitz - as a competence centre for the analysis, assessment and monitoring of agro biotechnological products and methods. Partners from science and economy co-operate to develop new, efficient and cost effective methods and to bring them to market in the One-top-Agency BioOK GmbH. The Initiative started with funding by the German Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF.
The network BioOK offers a complete portfolio of analytical procedures for risk assessment of genetically modified plants. BioOK is a confederation of five companies, one Steinbeis Transfer Centre and the University of Rostock. The partners of BioOK hold long-standing experience in essential procedures for the assessment of food, feed, pharmaceutical and pesticide security. These methods will be adopted in order to analyse environmental and food/ feed risks of genetically modified plants and to develop new, simple, standardised, fast and legal procedures. The German Ministry for Education and Research funds these research projects of BioOK .
BioOK is a One-Stop- Agency which

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
