ISPE Glossary of Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Terminology

"The ISPE Glossary of Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Terminology is the result of many years of gathering material from sources such as scientific journals, industrial magazines, professional organizations, the world wide web, industry seminars, company guides, vendor and manufacturer information, national and international codes, and diverse individuals. This compilation of abbreviations, acronyms, and terminology is a reference for engineers, designers, technicians, owners, contractors, and others in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

FAO Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture

"The 'Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture' is a revised, augmented version of the 'Glossary of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering' published by FAO in 1999. The idea for such a collection of terminology associated with the rapidly expanding fields related to or deriving from biotechnology and genetic engineering, was stimulated by the difficulty of communicating effectively in discussions at intergovernmental level. On various occasions, simple differences of interpretation of terminology have threatened to de-rail negotiations of international importance.

"Generic terms (Higher Terms) associated with specific keywords are indicated by the use of the abbreviation 'h.t.'. This means that whenever the specific term appears in the file, the corresponding Higher Term(s) will also appear and can be searched instead of the specific keyword if a broader search is desired. The abbreviation 's.a.' (see also) is used to indicate a related term which may also be worth considering in a search. Some terms have been altered since the start of the database and this is indicated by the use of the word 'was'.
