Tomato Biotechnology Group

Votes:0
Texas A&M Tomato Biotechnology Group Fruit ripening represents a system for developmental change and genetic control unique to plants. A research plan directed toward elucidation of the genetic components of fruit ripening is being implemented in laboratories in both the Department of Horticultural Sciences and the Crop Biotechnology Center. Findings will ultimately lead to both a greater understanding of the molecular determinants regulating plant development and to the modification of agriculturally important characters via biotechnology . We have chosen tomato fruit as a model for our analysis of ripening because genetic and molecular maps , DNA transformation techniques, tissue culture regeneration, well characterized ripening physiology and ripening mutants are all available in this s Read More

Alfalfa is Alfalfa, or Is It? Consumer Acceptance of Genetically Engineered Food Peggy G. Lemaux, Ph.D. Department of Plant and Microbial Biology University of California, Berkeley CA 94720 Introduction There have been promises relating to the potential for positive impact of the new genetic technologies in terms of modifying agricultural crops to create more affordable and nutritious food and feed sources in a more environmentally friendly manner. As with other new technologies, however, come questions about safety and broader populational and environmental impact and these concerns can often bring concern and unrest. How far have we come with these technologies and where are we likely to be going in the short-term and the long-term? How Does Classical Breeding Differ From Genetic Enginee Read More

Controlling Insect Resistance to Bt Crops

Votes:0
Controlling Insect Resistance to Bt Crops Crop and Soil Environmental News, September 1996 Charles Hagedorn, Extension Biotechnology Specialist The last issue of "CSE News" introduced the plans approved by EPA and USDA to delay the evolution of resistance to Bt occurring as a result of the use of Bt crops. In this issue, details of the potato, corn, and cotton management plans are described, and the monitoring and mitigation (eradication) procedures they contain. The plans currently available to the public outline broad scientific approaches that might work to monitor and control the evolution of Bt resistance if sufficient resources were committed on a long-term basis to their implementation. In light of the practical uncertainties associated with prevention strategies, the current plans Read More

ESCAPE OF PEST RESISTANCE TRANSGENES TO AGRICULTURAL WEEDS: RELEVANT FACETS OF WEED ECOLOGY

Votes:0
ESCAPE OF PEST RESISTANCE TRANSGENES TO AGRICULTURAL WEEDS: RELEVANT FACETS OF WEED ECOLOGY 1 Nicholas Jordan University of Minnesota INTRODUCTION In this paper, I will sketch some features of weed ecology and evolutionary biology that, in my view, are relevant to assessing the prospects of pest resistance transgene escape into populations of agricultural weeds. I will focus on weeds of field crop agroecosystems, rather than addressing the broader category of invasive plants in general. This discussion is organized around a model for transgene escape that distinguishes three phases leading to the establishment of widely distributed populations of weeds carrying a transgene. In this scheme, the first event is hybridization between a weed and a transgenic crop. Second, a process of introgres Read More

EXTRAPOLATING FROM FIELD EXPERIMENTS THAT REMOVE HERBIVORES TO POPULATION-LEVEL EFFECTS OF HERBIVORE RESISTANCE TRANSGENES 1 Michelle Marvier and Peter Kareiva University of Washington INTRODUCTION In 1996, transgenic crops (cotton, corn, and potatoes) containing the gene from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) that encodes for an insecticidal toxin were first commercially produced in the United States. Because we can expect the commercialization of numerous crops with Bt insecticidal genes, environmentalists have cautioned regulators to explore the risks of this new technology. In response, industry has argued that this really is not a new technology, since plant breeders have a long history of artificially selecting for herbivore-resistant crop varieties using conventional methods.

Genetically Engineered High Solid Tomato

Votes:0
prev | next index for this volume | New Crops News | NewCROPS home page New Crops News, Spring 1993, vol. 3 no. 1 Genetically Engineered High Solid Tomato Once a leader in processing tomatoes, Indiana has gradually lost its share to California. Tomato acreage has dropped from 97,000 acres in 1935 to 9,000 acres in 1991. One of the reasons for this downhill slide has been the development of new cultivars and technologies which made California the most efficient tomato producer. Breeders have developed new varieties with concentrated fruit set and uniform ripening adapted to mechanical harvesting, creating a niche for Indiana in whole peeled, stewed and diced tomatoes. But more needs to be done to further improve tomato varieties suitable for growing in Indiana's climate. With the advent of Read More

PATHOGENS AND PLANT POPULATION DYNAMICS: THE EFFECTS OF RESISTANCE GENES ON NUMBERS AND DISTRIBUTION 1 Janis Antonovics University of Virginia INTRODUCTION The scenario that has stimulated this workshop is a scary one: resistance genes developed for protecting our crops escape into natural populations of weeds and crop relatives. These populations then become resistant to the pests and pathogens that hold them in check. Resistant populations explode in abundance and invade back into our crop fields, or displace and disturb the ecological balance of our natural communities. Circumstantial evidence that this scenario might be a cogent one comes from natural experiments that result from the inadvertent introductions of weeds from different continents. Success of such introductions is often at Read More
