Workshop on harmonised reference systems: Conclusion document available

A task force for the harmonisation of reference systems used in GMO detection has been established  during a workshop on the 23rd of January in Brussels. This initiative was taken by Co-Extra partners, the Joint Research Centre (JRC), EuropaBio, The International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) and public laboratories. 

This workshop also was aimed at opening discussion of relevant taxon identification issues in GMO quantification with specialists from the fields of taxonomy, phylogeny and breeding. The document summarising the conclusion of the workshop now is publicly available (see link below).
