While FAO recognizes that genetic engineering has the potential to help increase production and productivity in agriculture, forestry and fisheries, FAO is also mindful of concerns about the potential risks posed by certain aspects of modern biotechnology, including effects on human and animal health and possible environmental consequences. This training package is composed of three parts: Principles of safety assessment of foods derived from recombined-DNA plants, Tools and technique for trainers, Case Studies.
