Abstract

This report is the outcome of an EFSA procurement (OC/EFSA/GMO/2015/02) which aims at reviewing relevant scientific information on RNA interference (RNAi) that could serve as baseline information for the environmental risk assessment of RNAi-based genetically modified (GM) plants. The report is...

Abstract

In country, non-target arthropod (NTA) field evaluations are required to comply with the regulatory process for cultivation of genetically modified (GM) maize in Mexico. Two sets of field trials, Experimental Phase and Pilot Phase, were conducted to identify any potential harm of insect-protected...

Abstract

Maize is one of the world's five staple cereals and its traditional varieties constitute a global resource critical to future agricultural development. Fifteen years ago, claims that transgenes had spread into traditional landrace maize in Mexico started an international discussion on the scale and...

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 potato plants harbouring cry1Ab gene, resistant to potato tuber moth, were used to examine the persistence of recombinant DNA and proteins in the digesta, gastrointestinal tract (GIT) tissues and visceral organs of rats in a 90-day feeding trial. Native plant DNA (chloroplastic gene, cp)...
