A PROTOTYPE DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM
FOR GMO TRACEABILITY
The problem of traceability of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) addresses the detection, identification and quantification of GMOs in food, feed and seed samples. Due to a large number of GMOs in the market, a system for reliable and affordable traceability of GMOs, optimizing the price of testing for a given sample, has to be established. We have defined the input to the future decision support system for assay selection to be of a tabular form, with rows corresponding to GMOs, and columns corresponding to assays they react to. In this paper we present a prototype decision support system for GMO detection and identification.
