The technology to produce genetically engineered (GE) plants is celebrating its 30th anniversary and one of the major achievements has been the development of GE crops. [] Key Method We have reviewed the scientific literature on GE crop safety during the last 10 years, built a classified and manageable list of scientific papers, and analyzed the distribution and composition of the published literature.
Transgenic Crops: Status, Potential, and Challenges
TLDR
This chapter covers a brief overview of agricultural biotechnology, starting with the development of Agrobacterium and gene gun-mediated transformation technologies, and challenges associated with further adoption of GM crops are discussed.
Food and Feed Safety of Genetically Engineered Food Crops
The first genetically engineered (GE) food crop (tomato) was introduced in 1995, followed by the successful development and commercial release of maize, soybeans, cotton, canola, potatoes, papaya,
Public Acceptance of Plant Biotechnology and GM Crops
A wide gap exists between the rapid acceptance of genetically modified (GM) crops for cultivation by farmers in many countries and in the global markets for food and feed, and the often-limited
Safety Assessment of Genetically Modified Feed: Is There Any Difference From Food?
TLDR
The regulatory framework of GM crops intended for animal feed is reviewed using the available information on GM food as the baseline and the concentration of novel proteins in different plant tissues and level of exposure to GM feedstuff in the diet of target animals should be considered.

TLDR
The need for GM crops, the way they are produced and the impact and safety of GM crops are explored; the future is very promising for GM technologies to enhance efforts to meet the future global needs for food feed and fiber in a sustainable and responsible way.
A REVIEW OF GENETIC IMPROVEMENT OF MAIN FRUIT TREES THROUGH MODERN BIOTECHNOLOGICAL TOOLS AND CONSIDERATIONS OF THE CULTIVATION AND RESEARCH OF THE ENGINEERED PLANT RESTRICTIONS
TLDR
The cis-genic and intragenic concepts were introduced about ten years ago to distinguish the plants engineered on the basis of the origin of introgressed genes or the changes made by the individual genes of the plant subjected to modifications.
Genome Edited Crops Touch the Market: A View on the Global Development and Regulatory Environment
TLDR
An overview on the current and potentially future international regulatory environment and an update on plants derived by genome editing with market-oriented traits is given.
Insect-resistant transgenic crops: retrospect and challenges
TLDR
The first part of this review focuses the development of different insect-resistantcrops and various strategies adapted to delay resistance development in insect pests, while the second part addresses the challenges and future prospects of insect- resistant crops.

TLDR
The findings to date with respect to both commercial and experimental GM crops expressing anti-insect genes are discussed here, with particular emphasis on insect predators and parasitoids.

The Establishment of Genetically Engineered Canola Populations in the U.S.
TLDR
A systematic roadside survey of canola populations growing outside of cultivation in North Dakota, USA documents the presence of two escaped, transgenic genotypes, as well as non-GE canola, and provides evidence of novel combinations of transgenic forms in the wild.

TLDR
A mandatory pre-market approval system that applies established safety standards in procedures that are transparent and allows for public participation with no pre-conceived notions or biases will best achieve both safe products and consumer trust.
