New Database of DNA Sequences in GMOs

December 2, 2015

The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission has published JRC GMO-Amplicons, a new database which contains more than 240,000 DNA sequences that appear in genetically modified organisms (GMOs). This new database will help in verifying  the presence of GMOs in food, feed, and environment. This new database to date, is the largest and most comprehensive in this area and could be key to developing new methods for detecting GMOs in food and feed.
