A first introduction to genetic engineering
This is not so. The effect of a gene is dependent on its location and its interaction with other genes. Therefore, insertion of foreign genes is ... in the master program. This adds further to the unpredictability of the outcome of artifical gene insertion (genetic engineering). In spite of this inevitable unpredictability, the safety of GE foods has not ...

On substantial equivalence Dr Pusztai: The idea of "substantial equivalence" is that there is no ... tuppence for substantial equivalence. We had two transgenic lines of potato produced from the same gene insertion and the same growing conditions; we grew them together along with the parent plant. With ...

The Center for Food Safety - Historic Lawsuit Against the Food and Drug Administration to Force Labeling and Safety Testing of Genetically Engineered Foods Continues
The most pressing health concern involves the impact of inserting novel genes into fruits, vegetables and other food products. With each gene insertion there is the ... a recent study reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. In the study a gene from a Brazil nut was introduced into a soybean. The genetically engineered soybean was then ...

FAQ on Genetic Engineering
It is therefore more controllable and predictable. A transgenic line, in contrast, results from gene insertion events in a single original cell, out of which the entire line is produced. ... Insertion of foreign DNA into animal cells could also trigger cancer. For more details on this topic, read, "What is horizontal gene transfer" and "Techniques and dangers of genetic engineering" in Horizontal Gene ...

Roundup Ready yield penalty: either spraying with Roundup or the gene insertion process. Their studies showed spraying had no effect. Researchers sprayed 13 Roundup Ready ... didn't affect soybean growth, development or yields. From that, the scientists deduced the gene insertion process was responsible. This research was conducted by IANR's Agricultural Research Division. ...

Environmental Commons: GMO Factsheet
Are Genetically Modified Foods Safe? Unless a Life Science company calls the new genetic insertion a "food additive," genetically modified foods are not required to be submitted to pre- ... and plants could cause detrimental effects from "genetic pollution," which occurs when an engineered gene enters another species of crop or wild plant through cross-pollination. This contamination may ...

Common gene therapy vector causes cancer as well as toxic shock
Teenager Jesse Gelsinger died three days after receiving gene therapy with adenoviral vector [2]. He had suffered liver injury and inappropriate blood coagulation ... One possibility, not mentioned by the authors of the mice study, is that the initial insertion may have destabilised the genome, leading to large scale genome scrambling that is increasingly ...
