Two articles published recently in Plant Physiology have been chosen as “Editor’s Choice”. Horticultural Sciences professor Dr. Curt Hannah was a key author on both publications. They were commissioned by the International Food Biotechnology Committee to examine the state of the research, along with the potential risks and benefits of “stacked” traits in genetically-modified crops.
The articles address a number of important questions related to genomic instability and potential interactions between unrelated traits that could potentially impact product safety. Both articles may be viewed without charge at the IFBC website http://www.ilsi.org/FoodBioTech/Pages/Publications.aspx.
