Safety Assessment and Detection Methods of Genetically Modified Organisms

Author(s): Rong Xu, Zhe Zheng, Guanglian Jiao.


Genetically modified organisms (GMOs), are gaining importance in agriculture as well as the production of food and feed. Along with the development of GMOs, health and food safety concerns have been raised. These concerns for these new GMOs make it necessary to set up strict system on food safety assessment of GMOs. The food safety assessment of GMOs, current development status of safety and precise transgenic technologies and GMOs detection have been discussed in this review. The recent patents about GMOs and their detection methods are also reviewed. This review can provide elementary introduction on how to assess and detect GMOs.

Keywords: Assessment, GMO, GMOs detection, transgenic technologies.
