Closing discussion on this theme
Unfortunately, there has not been very much discussion regarding this theme on experiences in detecting transgenes in wild relatives.
With summer holidays approaching for those of us in the northern hemisphere and as we turn our focus to preparations for COP-MOP 6 in Hyderabad in October, we are going to close discussion on this theme for now.
We intend, however, to re-start the discussion groups under the laboratory network in the fall so we will be in touch with you again. By this time, we hope to have more information about plans for the inter-regional workshop for representatives of laboratories involved in LMO detection and identification.
We will also leave open the forum where you may post suggestions for future discussion themes in case you wish to identify topics for discussion in the future. You may access this forum here: http://bch.cbd.int/onlineconferences/portal_art18/htpi_discussiongroups.shtml
Thank you for your contributions to date and we look forward to resuming discussions under the laboratory network later this year.
