Normal expression of insect-resistant transgene in progeny of common wild rice crossed with genetically modified rice: its implication in ecological biosafety assessment

Abstract

Transgene outflow from genetically modified (GM) rice to its wild relatives may cause undesirable ecological consequences. Understanding the level of transgene expression in wild rice following gene flow is important for assessing such consequences, providing that transgene escape from GM rice cannot be prevented. To determine the expression of a transgene… (More)
