Description: Since the 90´s Brazil has been a hot pan of discussion over the potential benefits and risks of genetically modified organisms (GMO). Safety, competitiveness, development, intellectual property rights & public goods are issues being being discussed by scientists, industry proponents, NGO?s, Government and policy officials, and congressmen, to mention some. Within this scenario, the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation ? Embrapa ? recognized the need to contribute to the development of a genetically modified (GM) organisms, environmental risk assessment and food safety platform due to the urgency of in-country produced safety results and the importance of carefully designed research protocols that can meet the confidence standards by decision makers and the general public. In this direction, Embrapa approved a project ? BioSeg - to generate protocols and scientific information through the analysis of Embrapa?s developed GM-plants, which aim to contribute to a more constructive and interactive biosafety analysis, presenting data that refer explicitly to specific crops, genes, ecological settings and production systems.
