QpcrGMOfood: Reliable, standardised, specific, quantitative detection of genetically modified foods

The QpcrGMOfood project was one of five projects clustered in the ENTRANSFOOD network.

The QpcrGMOfood project was one of five projects clustered in the ENTRANSFOOD network.

Financial support was provided by the European Commission through the 5th Framework Program (FP5), under the priority Quality of life and management of living resources (QoL).

In the sixth framework program, further developments in GMO detection are carried out in the Co-Extra project.

The results of the QpcrGMOfood project are currently applied by the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL) and the Community Reference Laboratory (CRL) for GM food and feed.
