IPAFEED, the online database platform developed as part of the project “Monitoring of Animals for Feed-related Risks in the Long Term” (MARLON), has now been established.
This database, which will be kept updated throughout the duration of the project, aims to serve as a point of reference for the scientific biosafety community (supporting evaluations) as well as for different stakeholder group, in support for regulatory or risk management/assessment purposes.
It presents a collection of searchable data for monitoring possible health impacts of GM crops, or that of crops /feeds in more general terms, on the health of livestock animals consuming these crops / feeds. This data was extracted from scientific papers after the application of data search and extraction protocols, with detailed description of each study, with accessible results, reference and link to the source paper, and from a survey performed by the project partners in their respective countries.
It can be accessed at www.ipafeed.eu.
