Project summary

The goal of the project is to quantify the risk of horizontal gene transfer from GM crops to soil bacteria and to assess the role of probiotics against antibiotic resistance’s dissemination in ecosystems. Apart from this, the GMO detection methods in Armenia will be validated, and for the first time harmonized with international procedures (i.e., EU regulations).
