Online Conference on GMO for Management of Animal Populations

Biosafety Considerations in the use of Genetically Modified Organisms for Management of Animal Populations

From 18 October to 15 November 2004, the Biosafety Clearing-House hosted an online conference on “Biosafety Considerations in the use of Genetically Modified Organisms for Management of Animal Populations”. The conference posts are archived below.

Discussion topics included but were not limited to:

the use of genetically modified microorganisms, nematodes and insects for biological control (including those used to cause sterility in pest species for conservation and/or commercial purposes)
the use of genetically modified viruses to protect mammal populations against disease
the use of genetically modified insects for reducing disease transmission rates

In order to stimulate discussion, two background papers (see below) were provided to provide an overview of some of the issues.
