Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


COGEM wants to be prepared for the near future and has commissioned a project that must provide an overview of the developments in research and production of genetically modified algae, the potential risks of GM-algae and the knowledge already available and required. The project include a desk research and a workshop. The desk research, inspiring workshop and constructive discussions between the board and the researchers resulted in an report in which al issues are intensively discussed. The report is a solid base for future risk assessment in the COGEM but also of interest for the algae research population.
