EFSA scientific colloquium “Omics in risk assessment: state-of-the-art and next steps”

Tuesday, 24 April, 2018 (All day) to Wednesday, 25 April, 2018 (All day)

In recent years the development of innovative tools in Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics and Metabolomics (designated collectively as OMICs technologies) has opened up new possibilities for applications in scientific research and led to the availability of vast amounts of analytical data.

EFSA’s 24th Scientific Colloquium on “OMICS in risk assessment: state-of-the-art and next steps” will explore the opportunities for integration of datasets produced via specific OMICS tools within the remit of EFSA’s risk assessment approaches.

International experts will gather for an open scientific debate on the integration of data produced by OMICS in the risk assessment of food and feed products. Discussions will focus on Genomics in microbial strain characterisation, Metabolomics for the comparative assessment of GM plants and the use of OMICS for toxicological and environmental risk assessment.
