Article
Full-text available
Novel genetically modified biological control products (referred to as “GM biocontrol products”) are being considered to address a range of complex problems in public health, conservation, and agriculture, including preventing the transmission of vector-borne parasitic and viral diseases as well as the spread of invasive plant and animal species. T...
Article
Full-text available
The ability to engineer gene drives (genetic elements that bias their own inheritance) has sparked enthusiasm and concerns. Engineered gene drives could potentially be used to address long-standing challenges in the control of insect disease vectors, agricultural pests and invasive species, or help to rescue endangered species. However, risk concer...
Article
Full-text available
Genome editing in agriculture and food is leading to new, improved crops and other products. Depending on the regulatory approach taken in each country or region, commercialization of these crops and products may or may not require approval from the respective regulatory authorities. This paper describes the regulatory landscape governing genome ed...
Article
The combination of advanced genomics, genome editing and plant transformation biology presents a powerful platform for basic plant research and crop improvement. Together these advances provide the tools to identify genes as targets for direct editing as single base pair changes, deletions, insertions and site specific homologous recombination. Rec...
Chapter
Bringing together the ideas of experts from around the world, this incisive text offers cutting-edge perspectives on the risk analysis and governance of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), supporting effective and informed decision-making in developing countries. Comprised of four comprehensive sections, this book covers: integrated risk analysi...
Article
ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEMS FACING REGULATORY BODIES THAT MAKE decisions regarding environmental biosafety of GE crops is determining what constitutes sufficient data to make risk assessments. To efficiently assess the potential impact of a GE crop, decisions must first be made about which specific issues are of concern to regulatory agencie...
Article
Full-text available
Two of Asgrow's experimental virus resistant transgenic lines, XPH-1719 and XPH-1739, and their parental line, Pavo, a commercially grown virus susceptible hybrid, were tested for field performance at the Texas A&M University Experimental Farm in the summer of 1993. The two transgenic squash lines possessed the desired fruit and plant characteristi...
