Omics Technologies in Risk Assessment

Whilst omics technologies may have major implications for EFSA’s scientific activities, it is not clear to what extent they can be integrated in risk assessment. The main objectives of this project included a review of the state of the art of omics techno ...

Strategies for food and feed safety of GM plants

This report reviews current scientific literature and risk assessment frameworks for assessing food and feed safety of GM plants, in cases where the comparative approach, as applied by EFSA, may not be fully applicable. This may apply to a range of GM tra ...
