The results of a report made for Genoma España on the biotechnological culture in Spain are presented. The report covers the period 1994-2002 and is based on data from different public opinion surveys and the analysis of the archives of the electronic versions of Spanish newspapers, and the Spanish News Agency EFE. There is a relatively optimistic vision of the biotechnological culture in Spain and the public interest in biotechnology has increased (the presence of these subjects in mass media tripled 1994-2002), focusing on new hot subjects related to research into stem cells and genetically modified foods.
