Biological invasion of European tomato crops by Tuta absoluta: ecology, geographic expansion and prospects for biological control
A review of information on the invasion by T. absoluta, its ecology, and potential management strategies, including data that may help the implementation of efficient biological control programs, indicates an urgent need for efficient and sustainable management methods. Expand
Guidance for risk assessment of food and feed from genetically modified plants
Every section of the document addresses specifically the requirements for GM plants containing a combination of transformation events, providing guidance on how to establish that the combination is stable and that no interactions occurs between the events that may raise safety concerns. Expand

Exposure of larvae of three non-target species to GM maize MON810 expresses a Cry1Ab insecticidal protein, derived from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt), toxic to lepidopteran target pests such as Ostrinia nubilalis is analysed. Expand
The impact of transgenic plants on natural enemies: a critical review of laboratory studies
These involve various parameters, organisms, test methods, and significance levels, but collectively they indicate that the use of genetically modified crops may result in negative effects on the natural enemies of crop pests. Expand
Scientific Opinion on the assessment of allergenicity of GM plants andmicroorganisms and derived food and feed
The weight-of-evidence, case-by-case approach is considered the most appropriate way of assessing the allergenicity of genetically modified (GM) food and feed, and various aspects to increase the strength and accuracy are discussed. Expand
Transgenic Insecticidal Crops and Natural Enemies: A Detailed Review of Laboratory Studies
A continued bias toward studies on a few predator species, especially the green lacewing, Chrysoperla cornea Stephens, is identified, which may be more sensitive to GM insecticidal plants. Expand
Guidance on the Post-Market Environmental Monitoring (PMEM) ofgenetically modified plants
This scientific opinion repeals the former 2006 scientific opinion of the EFSA GMO Panel on Post-Market Environmental Monitoring of GMPs and proposes a holistic and integrative approach for monitoring GMPs in the EU that considers GS within a framework of general environmental protection monitoring. Expand
Safety and nutritional assessment of GM plants and derived food and feed: the role of animal feeding trials.
The potential and limitations of animal feeding trials for the safety and nutritional testing of whole GM food and feed are discussed, in particular the ability of these experiments to indicate clinical effects or histopathological abnormalities in organs or tissues of exposed animals is examined. Expand
EFSA Panel on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
Soybean 305423 was developed through particle bombardment and contains gm-fad2-1 and gm-hra expression cassettes, conferring a high oleic acid profile and tolerance to acetolactate synthaseExpand
Scientific opinion addressing the safety assessment of plants developed using Zinc Finger Nuclease 3 and other site-directed Nucleases with similar function
The EFSA GMO Panel considers that its guidance documents are applicable for the evaluation of food and feed products derived from plants developed using the SDN-3 technique and for performing an environmental risk assessment, however, on a case-by-case basis lesser amounts of event specific data may be needed.
