Detecting GMOs

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This interactive course on “The analysis of food and feed samples for the presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)” covers a broad spectrum of topics required by anyone wishing to enter and work in the field of GMO detection: theoretical information is complemented by a wide variety of commonly used techniques for GMOs detection, identification, characterisation, and quantification. The principal scope of this training aid is to assist staff of control laboratories to become accustomed with molecular detection techniques applied to GMOs, and to help them adapt their facilities and work programmes to include analyses which comply with worldwide regulatory acts in the field of biotechnology. This course is intended to facilitate work being carried out in a wide range of Institutions: National Control Laboratories, Public Institutes, as well as Industry and Research Institutions. In addition, it provides information on the practical implementation of evolving European legislation dealing with GMOs, as useful background for decision makers, Ministries and national or international agencies
