Detection of Living Modified Organisms ( LMOs ) and the Need for Capacity Building

  title={Detection of Living Modified Organisms ( LMOs ) and the Need for Capacity Building},
  author={Christopher D. Viljoen},
The paper emphasizes on the need of implementing the Biosafety Protocol for the developing countries and suggests to establish capacity building measures. It identifies various ways to detect GMOs and discuss their relevance in the context of developing countries. The paper has elaborated the concept of transgene and provides an overview of GMO regulations across various countries.
