Subject
Summary, abstract or table of contents
This paper reviews what is known about the effect of the plant transformation process on the plant genome. It analyses the extent and frequency of transformation-induced mutations in transgenic plants created by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and particle bombardment. It discusses the potential of such mutations to result in unintended harmful phenotypes and the biosafety and regulatory implications of these findings. It also offers recommendations to researchers and regulators which, if followed, would help prevent or eliminate transformation-induced mutations in transgenic plants. This review does not discuss the potential for the transgene itself to result in unintended phenotypic consequences.
