Biosafety

Covering the safety of transgenic organisms

Latest content

Abstract

The diet and what is related to it are important elements for the study of the civilizing crisis that we are experiencing. Phenomena like erosion of biodiversity, diseases from the use of pesticides, and collateral effects of transgenic technology, among many others, are related to a lifestyle that...

Abstract

A corporate industrialization of African agriculture could destroy the biodiversity and ecosystems that agroecological approaches are based on. Taking the introduction of genetically modified organisms in Nigeria, this article looks at how such industrialization processes can come about.

Abstract

It is important to assess the biosafety of genetically engineered bacteria before release into the environment. In a previous study, the genetically engineered bacterium Burkholderia pyrrocinia JK-SH007E1 was developed, showing biological control activity against a poplar canker disease. In the...

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)...
