The OPCW is seeking proposals from scientists across its Member States that describe a specific type of vegetation and its potential to act as an indicator of exposure to chemicals that are toxic to humans and animals as part of the Plant Biomarker Challenge.

With a view towards prevention of the re-emergence of chemical weapons and strengthening efforts to keep humans safe and secure from chemical threats, the OPCW Technical Secretariat is interested in learning from the world’s scientific community about innovative, yet practical, capabilities that enable the recognition of biochemical signatures of chemical exposure.
