Biosafety

Covering the safety of transgenic organisms

Abstract

Novel foods derived from genome-editing techniques call for an updated risk analysis of the use of plant produced by genome editing, especially in China. As a developing country with the largest population and limited arable land, China has invested intensively in genetically modified (GM) crops to...

Abstract

Objective: The objective of this study is to assess the effects of transgenic glyphosate-tolerant (EPSPS) and insect-resistant (Bt Cry1Ab) maize DBN9936 on biodiversity of arthropod communities, which will supply basic data for transgenic crop biosafety. Method: In the growing period in 2015, the...

Abstract

The biosafety of fat-1 transgenic cattle has been a focus of our studies since the first fat-1 transgenic cow was born. In this study, we used tandem mass tag labeling, TiO2 enrichment, and nanoscale liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (nanol LC-MS/MS) to compare proteomic...

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...
