The Joint Research Initiative of the European Commission has released a collection of reference methods for the detection and analysis of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).The report comprises 79 reference methods which have been validated according to international standards, representing the state of the art in GMO detection. The report aims at providing user friendly descriptions of detection methods to facilitate implementation of GMO legislation through official control bodies. It constitutes the first volume of a planned compendium of reference methods for GMO analysis, being developed jointly by the EU Reference Laboratory for Genetically Modified Food and Feed and the European Network of GMO Laboratories. This report focuses on DNA-based detection methods using polymerase chain reactions. Each method is described in a comprehensive summary including references for further information.
