Launched on 05.05.2011, the GMOMETHODS database is based on the "Compendium of Reference Methods for GMO analysis" that was developed by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Genetically Modified Food and Feed (EURL-GMFF), in collaboration with the European Network of GMO Laboratories (ENGL). 

Accordingly, the GMOMETHODS database includes DNA-based GMO detection methods which have been validated according to international standards (ISO 5725 international standard on accuracy, trueness and precision of measurement methods and results and/or the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry) protocol).
