Scientific information used in GMO risk assessment often is difficult to access for external experts as well as for stakeholders. This was and still is particularly true for whole-food toxicity studies conducted in the course of GM food/feed risk assessment and also applies to scientific literature. The lack of detailed information available has impaired the discussions, inspired speculations and effectively hampered progress in the scientific debate.

 

G-TwYST will therefore make accessible the detailed scientific information including raw data via the open access database CADIMA set up by the FP7 project GRACE. The Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection in Germany supports the maintenance of this open access database that enables the integration of data from all feeding studies conducted troughout G-TwYST, GRACE and GMO90+ beyond the lifetime of the Project.
