A fuller understanding in the 1940s of the potency of chemical mutagens, for example, might have reduced the improper use and disposal of earlier synthetic chemicals. In the short term the new biological technologies will have a variety of important implications for agriculture.

The ARS has a well-established research effort at Beltsville, Maryland, on gene transfer in food animals. This and related areas of molecular genetic research should be expanded during the next several years, with particular emphasis on the following: • Characterization of the physiological basis and genetic traits involved in important animal processes such as disease resistance, the immune response, metabolic regulation of nutrient utilization, developmental biology, and other aspects of production efficiency.
