On August 1-3, 2017, a three-day technical training program was conducted in Bogor, Indonesia, organized by the Agriculture & Food Systems Institute in cooperation with the Indonesian National Agency for Food and Drug Control (BPOM) and the Indonesian Center for Animal Research and Development (ICARD).  This activity provided an opportunity for participants to engage in practical exercises highlighting the fundamental concepts employed in food and feed safety assessments of genetically engineered (GE) crops.
