GM and novel food research

The FSA carries out research to support the safety assessment of GM and novel foods.

A range of projects are included in the programme, including the development of data models from the baseline information gathered under G02, alternative GM DNA detection methods, studies on post-translational modification in GM plants and the feasibility of using Multidimensional Protein Identification Technology as a tool for GM safety assessment.
