WG1 Biological characterisation of GMTs

 

Description

The task will evaluate existing knowledge including the experience from expert scientists in the field of forest GMTs. Specifically, this WG will collect:

- Literature and methods developed on gene flow and containment strategies;

- Information available on the construct used and trait targeted for GMTs: name of the construct, name of the trait, donor organism, and function of the gene introduced;

- Main information on GMTs: taxonomic status, common name, centre/s of origin, and any other additional information available and related to biosafety (for example: biological cycle, type of pollination, type of pollen and seed dispersal method, etc.)

 

The results of this work will enable the participants and end users to develop a clear factual overview of the status of GMTs in European and non-European countries, and the information provided are useful to make previsions on risk assessment (WG2).

 

 

Objectives

1. To list the principal biological characters of existing and potential GMTs in EU and non-EU countries

2. To report existent protocols for the control of transgene flow and gene containment.

3. To report progress in gene targeting strategies for site specific integration of transgenes.

4. To Provide a database with the main information on forest GMTs, available to the scientific community and Europe organisations (information for WG4)

5. To provide information for further environmental impacts assessment to assist EU policy (in collaboration with WG2, WG3)

6. To use all the information collected to identify particular topics which could be useful to develop research projects (in collaboration with WG1, WG2, WG3, WG4)

7. To summarised in a book the knowledge gained as a final output of this Action (joint publication within WGs)
