German Green MEPs promote CRISPR and genetic engineering in agriculture

/

A group of German Green MEPs supports the use of genetic engineering techniques, which they believe could make a significant contribution to sustainable development. This is a novel approach that runs counter to the position that environmentalists usually take on this subject. In a forum on 10 June, the 22 signatories - who

Organisms modified by CRISPR are legally GMOs

The scientific-economic-judicial battle has been raging for ten years. Are organisms (plants or animal species) modified by genetic engineering tools such as CRISPR GMOs or not? The Court of Justice of the European Union has just handed down its verdict, which will henceforth set a precedent: organisms modified by

Will you take up a little GMOs or do you prefer GMOs?

Les nouvelles techniques génétiques prennent toutes sortes de noms au gré des intentions de chacun :  NBT (New breeding techniques), OGM ou OGE (organismes génétiquement édités) … Toujours est-il qu’elles présentent les mêmes propriétés que les OGM (résistance aux herbicides ou aux insecticides notamment), mais échappent à leur cadre règlementaire.

Currently, several new genetic modification techniques are being discussed to determine whether or not the products derived from them will be regulated as transgenic GMOs. This article by Eric Meunier of the journal inf'OGM allows us to understand some of the potential risks associated with the mere introduction of transgenic GMOs.
