Risk assessment

"Everything in life has some risk, and what you have to actually learn to do is how to navigate it." - Reid Hoffman

         During strain development and improvement, one of the major issues may include environment and ecosystem impacts. Research relied on risk assessment is necessary in order to identify potential, analyse, and control hazards and risks that may be related to environment and ecosystems. This information will raise awareness for decision-making processes, legislation, trading, and public opinions.
