About this Research Topic
The International Society for Biosafety Research (ISBR) organizes the bi-annual International Symposium on the Biosafety of Genetically Modified Organisms (ISBGMO). ISBGMO 13 will take place in Cape Town, South Africa from November 9th-13th. This meeting represents the premier scientific conference for academic, government and private sector scientists working on the science of environmental risk assessment (ERA) for genetically engineered plants, animals and microorganisms. This Research Topic in Biosafety of Genetically Modified Organisms will provide a forum for publications resulting from the symposium. Articles in the Topic will include thought pieces on future research needs for biosafety, research results, and discussion of the current ERA paradigm and its application to new and emerging applications of genetic engineering.
