Detection and Identification Online Discussions 2019 [#9977]
Distinguished Colleagues,

The Detection and Identification Online Discussions 2019 provides an opportunity to update and share our experiences on current trends in the detection and identification of LMOs and emerging issues in the detection, identification and monitoring of organisms, components and products of synthetic biology. Also open for discussions are the current and existing capacities for the detection and identification of LMOs.
The feedback on these issues will be summarized as a resource for the network of laboratories for the detection and identification of LMOs.
We still have some time and therefore encourage meaningful engagements among participants. The Secretariat echoes the moderator’s invitation to participants to contribute to the discussions while thanking those that have done so already..

Best regards,
Shakirat Ajenifujah-Solebo

RE: Detection and Identification - sources of methods [#10035]
Dear participants,

A number of peer-reviewed sources of information are available in addition to the ENGL handbook.  Unlike regional handbooks, these resources discuss detection methods in the global context.  Several are open access.  For example, a discussion on sampling is available (Freese et al 2015) and a comparison of DNA and Protein-based detection methods (Alarcon, 2019) will be open access as of January 2020. Another good source of information is the book “Immunoassays in Agricultural Biotechnology“ edited by Guomin Shan (2010), which discusses the way that protein-based tests can be applied across the food chain.

Additionally the International Seed testing Association maintains a site with a list of sources of testing information at
https://www.seedtest.org/en/analytical-methods-_content---1--1477.html and links from this page. 

In response to the post of Apichart Vannavichit, [#10016] and Dr. Sarah Agapito-Tenfen [#10021], among others, the work of International Standards Organisation Technical Committee 34 subcommittee 16 (TC34/SC16) on detection methods is notable.  A number of ISO standards have been published that cover PCR and protein-based analytical methods, and work is in progress on a sampling standard.  The most relevant are listed below.

Thank you Raymond for the resources you have shared with us. These links will be invaluable for forum participants.

More inputs are welcome please.
