Розроблення українського порталу даних щодо генетично модифікованих рослин “Genetically modified plants gateway”
Aim. Development of a specialized database as a tool for optimization and cost reduction of GM detection analysis in seeds, food and feed. Methods. The project is implemented as online application based on Grails – high-performance software framework for the Java platform web development. The language of programming is Groovy, based on Java. Results. The Ukrainian portal "Genetically Modified Plants Gateway" was developed. The developed online database is constantly updated by certified methodologies and protocols for GM content analysis in products originated from plants. A collection and integration of data and information related to authorized and commercial products containing GM from various types of sources and international databases was conducted. The information sources for the database comprise Centre for Biosafety and Sustainability, Centre for environmental risk assessment, existing databases Asian region and CIS countries. Conclusions. The Ukrainian data portal "Genetically Modified Plants Gateway" was developed. This database is constantly updated by certified methodologies and protocols for GM content analysis of genetically modified components in products developed from plants.
