Genetically modified animals: Options and issues for traceability and enforcement

A. Lievens, M. Petrillo, M. Querci, A. Patak

Molecular Biology and Genomics Unit, European Commission – Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection, Via Enrico Fermi 2749, TP201, I-21027 Ispra, VA, Italy.


The past two decades have witnessed the rise of commercial crops that have been genetically modified for an increased suitability in extensive cultivation. Currently, a substantial body of research is being carried out in order to produce Genetically Modified (GM) animals that may similarly yield improvements in animal breeding, genetics and reproduction. Here, we attempt a comprehensive review of the existing trails at animal modification with commercial applications and aimed at a deliberate release onto the market. In addition, we investigate detection and quantification options within the frame of food/feed control and traceability on the European market.
