Uzbekistan and France signed a memorandum on the creation of two modern laboratories that meet the requirements of international accreditation.

Future laboratories will be able to identify products containing GMO (Genetically modified organisms), as well as find toxic organic compounds (TOCs) and analyze them, the press service of the Academy of Sciences informs.

It should be noted that the creation of these two laboratories at the Institute of Genetics and Plant Experimental Biology of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan will provide an opportunity to conduct research in parallel, on modern topics of GMOs and TOCs, and at the same time it will open new trading opportunities, which in turn will have a beneficial effect on the economy of the country.
