Welcome to the JRC GMO-Amplicons

JRC GMO-Amplicons is a nucleotide database of putative GMO-related sequences, obtained by PCR simulation screening of public nucleotide sequence databanks, including patents and available whole plant genomes.

The JRC GMO-Amplicons database is used both to assist the validation of new GMO detection methods, in particular when unexpected amplifications or PCR reactions with lower performances are observed in the laboratory, and to verify the quality and validity of already validated methods, as new sequence information is continuously made available and needs to be assessed.

The current version of the JRC GMO-Amplicon application contains a set interfaces available to the user, which is expected to grow based on the feedback that will be received. These are:

Amplicon finder

You can query the database by looking for specific amplicons features

Search by target ID

You can inspect target sequences from public nucleotide sequence databanks

BLAST amplicons

You can perform similarity searches by BLAST on the JRC GMO-Amplicons datasets
