GRACE Database



Improving the availability of scientific information on GM plants

 

The database CADIMA (Central Access Database for Impact Assessment of Crop Genetic Improvement Technologies) contains quality assessed studies and conclusions on the health effects, socio-economic consequences and environmental impacts of GM plants as well as raw data of animal feeding studies and alternative in vitro approaches.


It is currently under development and covers the EU projects GRACE, G-TwYST and PreSto GMO ERA-Net.
