|Technical advances in biotechnology lead to a rising number of genetically modified plants and derived food and feed. Therefore, the international interest in adequate and standardized analytical methods increases to assess health risks in a rapid and low cost manner.
To address this issue a decision support system (DSS), which will be based on baseline data and thresholds of key parameters, is going to be established in the framework of a joint project (BioOK). Determination of the potential allergenicity or toxicity of novel proteins caused by the genetic modification compared to near isogenic variants (NIV) is a key issue in this context. For the development of DSS the model plant “potato” was used to compare...|
