CERA and the GMO Working Group of the West Palaearctic Regional Section of the International Organisation for Biological Control (IOBC/WPRS) are organising a workshop "Design Considerations for Laboratory Studies on Non-Target Arthropods for Risk Assessment of GM Plants".
The workshop will be held 19 November, 2010 in conjunction with the International Symposium on the Biosafety of Genetically Modified Organisms in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This workshop will provide a platform to discuss key design considerations that are important for the reconstructability and interpretability of early tier, non-target arthropod laboratory studies used in risk assessment of genetically modified plants. Points to consider when designing and executing a laboratory non-target study will be presented and then exemplified using practical case studies from public and private sector institutions.
