Within the Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) regulatory framework, the safety assessment of GMOs involves the identification of the intended and unintended effects as a result of the genetic modification, a.o. through molecular characterisation. For most of the current transgenic crops the molecular characterisation consists of the determination of inserted DNA including the insert sequence, the insertion site(s), the number of inserts and its/their flanking regions. This is currently typically done by Southern blot (SB) and Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis in combination with sta…
