Learning outcomes

Module: Mod 1 laboratorio
-------
Laboratory practices for microorganism and plant GMO detection and quantification will be directly used in several different matrix food samples


Module: Mod 2 teoria
-------
--


Module: Mod 1 teoria
-------
The aim of the GMO class is to illustrate scientific elements and legal rules that characterize Genetic Modified Organism. The definition of GMO will be deeply discussed and will be presented the agronomic and industrial traits inserted in the microorganism and plant genomes. The official detection methods will be illustrated and fully discussed. EU and world legislation and regulation will be also discussed. Intellectual property, labeling and safety will be critically analyzed.
