Workshop 3. Crop Composition as a Component of Food and Feed Safety Assessment and Hands on with the ILSI Crop Composition Database
Organizers: Andrew Roberts and Bhavneet Bajaj, ILSI Research Foundation, USA

Crop composition is an essential component of the food safety assessment for GE crops that are intended to be used as food.  However, it is important to understand the purpose of the data and its context in the safety assessment.  This workshop will provide an opportunity to briefly discuss the rationale for considering crop composition data, how that data is interpreted in the context of the safety assessment and what the limitations are to compositional studies.  The workshop will also introduce participants to a resource for assisting in the interpretation of compositional studies, the ILSI Crop Composition database.  Participants will see a demonstration of the database and its features, highlighting updates and additions to Version 7 (expected to launch by Dec. 31 2018).  Then, participants will be provided with a series of exercises designed to help them understand the search reporting function of the ILSI Crop Composition Database that they can walk through using their personal laptop during the workshop. 
Note: The workshop is limited to 20 participants, and so will be conducted twice (at 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.).
