Inter-specific cross lines ZSR500, ZSR502 and ZSR503
No
Monsanto Canada Inc. and Zeneca Seeds have developed three Brassica rapa canola lines, ZSR500, ZSR502 and ZSR503, derived from inter-specific crosses with the Brassica napus line GT73, that expresses Roundup-Ready™ genes. These genes confer novel tolerance to glyphosate, the active ingredient of Roundup® herbicide, which can control or suppress economically important weeds in canola production.

The term “Recipient organism” refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas “Parental organisms” refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
