Titelblatt der Publikation

Genetic engineering makes it possible to transfer genes for insecticidal toxins from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) into corn. This genetically modified corn expresses Bt endotoxins (CryA1b) in a highly specific fashion protecting it from infestation by corn borers. The research at LfL dealt mainly with the question whether non-target organisms may be potentially affected by the use of the Bt gene. With a focus on a sustainable and environment-friendly agriculture, special attention was directed towards "species protection" "soil fertility", and "biological control". Die deutsche Version ist als Schriftenreihe 7/2005 erschienen. (113 Seiten)
