Webinar: DNA sequencing quality check: information required in GMO applications
19. März 2019
The goal of the webinar was to:
- Present the EFSA Technical Note on DNA sequencing quality check
- Describe the main requirements and recommendations for the DNA sequencing quality check of the methodology and datasets, when Sanger or next generation sequencing (NGS) are used for the molecular characterisation of GM plants
- Discuss preparation of submission of the sequencing information, for completeness and compliance to the EFSA Technical Note by APDESK and GMO Units.
- Provide clarifications on frequently asked questions
During the webinar, participants had the opportunity to submit their questions which were replied live or in writing via the online tool. Additional clarifications can be requested via the functional mailbox.
