EUginius GMO database

Aim is to develop the European GMO EUginius database. This database contributes to the enforcement of EU legislation on Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

The focus is on worldwide non-authorized GMOs that are not yet safe for humans, animals and the environment. The database is designed as a user-friendly, web-based European database. EUginius has links to the related Chinese initiative GMDD and is complementary to European initiatives such as the database of the EC-JRC in Ispra.

The EUginius database is completed mid 2012 and accessible via the Internet. Confidential information is protected through login-construction and will be visible only to authorized users. Laboratories in the Netherlands as NVWA and RIKILT will make frequent use of the database. For future use a structural maintenance and update of the database is of vital importance.
