Author's Abstract:

Using the tools of modern biotechnology to create genetically modified (GM) crops constitutes a real revolution in plant breeding. These techniques and products are generally regarded as highly novel, and hence require careful evaluation before commercial use. There is a worldwide consensus that this evaluation must be firmly grounded on empirically based scientific risk/safety assessment. This review describes risk assessment, focuses on its role in the decision-making process, and also describes the major areas of concern for the present generation of GM crops.
