Can we engineer life? 4.7 Plant gene technology, cisgenesis

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/siteProfessional


In cisgenesis, we insert new DNA in a stable form into plant DNA, just like in transgenesis. The difference being that in transgenesis, the new DNA originates from another species, in cisgenesis from a plant with which the acceptor plant can crossbreed. Researchers from Plant Research International at Wageningen UR have been arguing for almost fifteen years now to exempt cisgenic plants from GMO rules and laws. This would greatly facilitate and speed up their commercialization.
