Course Overview

This course will discuss the safety for human consumption of genetically engineered animal products, and how such products are evaluated to ensure they pose no greater risk to the food supply than products from non-genetically engineered animals.

Course Objective

Participants will learn about the safety measures employed to evaluate the risk of genetically engineered animal products. You will understand how genetically engineered animal products are evaluated against non-genetically modified products.

Course Goals

  1. Master an understanding of risk assessment in the safety of genetically engineered animal products.
  2. Describe methods and techniques used to ensure genetically engineered animal products are safe for human consumption.
  3. Describe what possible detrimental outcomes of genetic modification are evaluated to assess the risk to human consumption of these products.

Keywords

Food safety, genetic engineering, risk assessment.
