The Portfolio is made available to various audiences through a password-protected portal that delivers the course content, administers preliminary and final exams, and provides the administrative infrastructure to register users and track their progress through the modules.

This is the most recent addition to a host of projects and online resources by the Biosafety Group for its work on Biosafety, GMOs, biosecurity, public health, natural resource management, biocontrol, bioremediation and training.
