The testing and release of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)—in particular GM plants—is tightly regulated internationally to prevent any negative effects on the environment or human health. However, these regulations are based on transgenic organisms and do not discriminate between transgenic plants and cisgenic plants, although we believe that they are fundamentally different (see sidebar). Now, cisgenic plants fall under regulations designed for transgenic organisms, possibly because… CONTINUE READING
