GMCC07: Book abstracts now are available online

The ‘Third International Conference on Coexistence between Genetically Modified (GM) and non-GM based Agricultural Supply Chains’ presented the latest research in agronomic, biological and socio-economic sciences in regard to coexistence.

The conference, which was held in Seville (Spain) on 20 – 21 November 2007,  was aimed at supporting feasible coexistence strategies between GM and non-GM agricultural supply chains to meet novel regulatory and market-driven coexistence requirements world-wide. It also served policy-makers in the identification of future research needs with policy relevance. Three hundred participants from 38 countries attended the conference.

The scientific programme covered research activities and practical experiences in the following areas:

  • Gene flow in agricultural systems
  • Strategies for coexistence and organizational measures across the supply chain
  • Case studies of specific supply chains
  • Socio-economics of coexistence
  • Issues of legislation and policy
  • Traceability and control of coexistence

The abstracts of plenary sessions, oral presentations and posters now are available at the conference website.
