Biosafety

Covering the safety of transgenic organisms

Abstract

Incorporating socio-economic considerations (SECs) into national biosafety regulations regarding genetically modified (GM) crops have opportunity costs. Australia approved the cultivation of GM canola through a science-based risk assessment in 2003, but allowed state moratoria to be instituted...

Abstract

For assessing the effects of transgenic glyphosate tolerance and glufosinate-ammonium tolerance maize C0010.1.1 on biodiversity of arthropod community, which supplied basic data for the studies of transgenic crop biosafety, in the isolated field the number of species and individuals in the...

AbstractFull Text

The enormous development in gene transfer technology made it possible to evolve new cultivars with valuable agronomic traits but escape of transgenes from genetically modified crops is one of the major concerns for biosafety. This study was aimed to investigate the potential flow of rice chitinase...

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...
