Core Tip: On November 26, 2018, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) released a risk assessment on the new sequencing information of genetically modified soybean A2704-12.
www.foodmate.com reported that On November 26, 2018, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) released a risk assessment on the new sequencing information of genetically modified soybean A2704-12.

The GMO team has previously made a risk assessment of the health and environmental impact of the expected use of genetically modified soybean A2704-12 on humans and animals, and found that the soybean A2704-12 is as safe and nutritious as traditional soybean and commercial soybean varieties. After evaluation, new sequencing data and bioinformatics analysis of new sequences did not cause safety problems. Therefore, EFSA concluded that the original risk assessment of soybean BPS-CV127-9 was still valid.

Some of the original reports are as follows:


The GMO Panel has previously assessed genetically modified (GM) soybean A2704‐12. This soybean was found to be as safe and nutritious as its conventional counterpart with respect to potential effects on human and animal health and the environment in the context of its intended uses. On 5 June 2018, the European Commission requested EFSA to analyse new nucleic acid sequencing data and updated bioinformatics data for GM soybean A2704‐12 and to indicate whether the previous conclusions of the GMO Panel on the risk assessment of GM soybean A2704‐12 remain valid. The new sequencing data indicated seven nucleotide differences as compared to the sequence originally provided in application EFSA‐GMO‐NL‐2005‐18; six nucleotides in the 3′ genomic flanking region and one nucleotide in the soybean chloroplast DNA fragment located 5′ to the insert. Another nucleotide located in a polylinker region of the insert reported as ambiguous in the originally submitted sequence was resolved in the new sequence data. based on the information provided on the locations affected by the reported nucleotide differences, no open reading frames (ORFs) spanning the junction site between the insert and the 3′ genomic flanking DNA are affected by the differences in the 3′ genomic flanking region and were therefore excluded from the assessment.
