Cuban/Brazilian co-op on GMO detection

Cuban researchers are visiting Brazil to carry out training in the “multi-detection” of genetically modified organisms in the “ready-to-use boards system” at an official Brazilian mycology and molecular diagnostics laboratory. The training takes place at the agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa’s, laboratory in Rio de Janeiro. The work forms part of a co-operation deal between the countries that seeks to support the implementation of a GMO detection laboratory in Cuba. The Cuban authorities initially intend to develop reliable and “affordable” means of detecting GM maize and soybean feed from China and Latin America. The countries are working to harmonise protocols on isolating and purifying samples.
