About

The International Symposium on the Biosafety of Genetically Modified Organisms (ISBGMO) is a biennial, international meeting organized under the auspices of the International Society for Biosafety Research (ISBR), which has previously been hosted in South Africa, Germany, Canada, China, France, Korea, New Zealand, Argentina and the USA.

The goal of ISBGMO14 is to advance the standing of biosafety research around the world and shape the ways in which genetically modified (GM) technology is applied and regulated. Over the course of four days, attendees will learn from the past, discuss the present and look ahead to future opportunities and challenges associated with GM technology.
