“Biosafety: evaluation and regulation of genetically modified (GM) crops in the United States” Journal of Huazhong Agricultural University Vol 33(6): 85-114, Oct. 2014. Richard E. Goodman
This review paper is one of a series of publications in English and Chinese available from speakers at the International GMO workshop on the Global Status of Transgenic Crops. This Workshop was held at Huazhong Agricultural University in Wuhan China on 16-17 October, 2014, organized by the Chinese academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) food and feed safety and post market monitoring project, funded by the European Union. Contains project summaries and keynote presentations (videos and slide sets available for download).
The Allergen.org page contains information on protein allergen nomenclature along with a list of allergen.
The AllFam website classifies allergens into protein families. It also provides a browsing function listing the allergen source and its route of exposure.
The Allergome web site has been designed to supply information on Allergenic Molecules (Allergens).
Identified molecules causing an IgE-mediated (allergic, atopic) disease (anaphylaxis, asthma, atopic dermatitis, conjunctivitis, rhinitis, urticaria) have been selected from international scientific journals and from web-based resources.
It also contains data on allergenic sources whether they have identified molecules or not.
This is one of the most comprehensive online sources of information regarding allergens and allergenic proteins.
SWISS-PROT Protein Knowledgebase
The World Wide Web has simplified access to a great wealth of allergy and intolerance information for health professionals and consumers. However this information is not necessarily easily accessible. Search Engines do not grade Web sites or articles according to their content or worth. Important articles or resources may not show up at all on a Search Engine. Furthermore, excellent resources may be "hidden" in sites due to poor navigational design. Some noteworthy sites have little or poor information on certain topics, which may however, be well covered in more obscure sites.
CERA's database of safety information (formerly hosted by AGBIOS) includes not only plants produced using recombinant DNA technologies (e.g., genetically engineered or transgenic plants), but also plants with novel traits that may have been produced using more traditional methods, such as accelerated mutagenesis or plant breeding.
A searchable database with information on allergenic foods which has been developed with funding from the European Union.
