"Sharing knowledge to facilitate understanding of gene drive and other genetic biocontrol technologies"
 Hi <<First Name>>!,
I am just contacting you to let you know that the GeneConvene Virtual Institute is now online.

Thanks for agreeing to be a Content Advisor!

What now?  Well, there are 2 things you can do moving forward - both are easy.

First, visit the site and poke around.  Note what is there but also what is not there but could/should be in your opinion.  This would be great content advise!

Second, as you do your work and happen to come across new publications - scholarly or otherwise - that relate in some way to genetic biocontrol generally and gene drive in particular, share it with the Virtual Institute.  Use the ever-present SHARE button associated with online content and send it to me or

You are part of a human antenna we will use to make the Virtual Institute a valuable resource and THE go-to place for knowledge and information about gene drive and genetic biocontrol. 

Whether a user is a researcher, scholar, policy maker, regulator, reporter, a member of the public, an 'opponent' or 'advocate', the goal of the Virtual Institute is to be valuable and useful. 

Thanks again!
Dave O'B

How does the Virtual Institute work?
Content is identified by the Virtual Institute using a variety of digital tools and referrals from Content Advisors and Users.  That content can be seen as it enters the Institute's database on the home page based on category.  The database is fully searchable.  The Institute publishes an e-newsletter and subscribers will be notified weekly regarding the latest content added to the Institute.  Some of Institute's content is organized and 'served' to users in the form of pages.  What to serve and how to serve it will be ongoing challenges.  Eventually, the Virtual Institute will create original content such as webinars and e-learning resources.
