Scholarcy highlights

  • Transgenic plants are expected to integrate a foreign gene in an otherwise unmodified genome
  • The foreign gene is stably integrated in the genome of selected plants and is transmitted through the sexual progeny
  • There is no reason to exclude that genomic changes may have occurred in transgenic plants and that these determine visible or cryptic phenotypic and metabolic changes
  • It is normal practice to disregard transgenic plants with undesirable agronomic traits and to select those that show the highest expression of the transgene and are apparently normal for other traits
