Biosafety

Covering the safety of transgenic organisms

Latest content

Abstract

Powerful scientific techniques have caused dramatic expansion of genetically modified crops leading to altered agricultural practices posing direct and indirect environmental implications. Despite the enhanced yield potential, risks and biosafety concerns associated with such GM crops are the...

Abstract

Current GMO detection systems have limited abilities to detect unauthorized genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Here, we propose a new workflow, based on next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, to overcome this problem. In providing information about DNA sequences, this high-throughput...

Abstract

The population growth and scarcity of natural resources has determined the transition of genetic engineering to a new stage of its development, which is, however, accompanied by constant disputes regarding the quality and safety of such products. Safe to say that genetically modified products open...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Plant breeding is a multidisciplinary scientific activity with tool development as driving force. It is clear from history that availability of genetic variation and selection methods are bottom lines for variety development. The genetic source of traditional plant breeding is restricted to...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The introduction of genetic engineering has already shown its benefits in transferring genes into crop plants and conferring resistance towards pests. Most of these crop plants on the market have been transformed with the cry genes from Bacillus species, conferring resistance towards certain...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Coexistence between farmers using different crop production systems needs tolerance, since the growing of plants represents an open system and a perfect separation of plant materials between neighbouring fields is not possible. In the case of genetically modified (GM) plants, the situation is...

AbstractFull Text

Transgenic animal as bioreactors is a novel expression system capable of producing foreign proteins in live animal tissues and body fluids at an industrial scale level, such as the milk, blood, urine, seminal plasma and egg white. The use of the transgenic animal as bioreactors offers attractive...
