It provides the coverage in involving the release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), such as, genetically modified crops, genetically modified food, regulation of the release of genetic modified organisms; GMO safety; as well as the risk assessment and risk management of GMOs.

Published content should be on the highest quality, including original research papers, opinion papers and reviews. GMO Biosafety Research is committed to contributing significantly to the advancement of GMO Research.

GMO Biosafety Research is published independently by BioPublisher based on British Columbia of Canada. All papers published in this journal are licensed to all users under the terms of Creative Commons Attribution License (CCAL).

2 Aims and Scope
The results of research related to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are disseminated through an extremely broad range of fields and journals, GMO biosafety research journal will fill this gap. GMO biosafety research has become a particularly interesting intellectual topic based on this interdisciplinary feature, making an on-going in the future.

All areas pertinent to the biosafety of organisms intentionally or accidentally introduced into the GMOs will be considered, including innovative and significant research work; studies of GMO and biodiversity, environmental release of genetically modified plants, GMO detection methods and technologies; assessment of GM food safety testing, GMOs and public health, as well as the risk assessment of GMOs and the regulatory strategy for GMOs. GMO biosafety research will publish papers on all types of GMOs, including plants, animals and microbes. Studies on non-GMOs that illuminate or parallel GMO issues will also be considered.

The publication of the journal is new insights that are not only of broad interest to microbiologist, molecular geneticist, and molecular biologists, but also appropriate for teachers students and  researchers who engaged in genetically modified, and readers interested in biosafety research.
