  • Modeling of Gene Flow by a Bayesian Approach: A New Perspective for Decision Support 

    Bensadoun, Arnaud; Monod, Hervé; Angevin, Frédérique; Makowski, David; Messéan, Antoine (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    In the European debate about GMOs, the coexistence between GM and non-GM crops is a major stake. The regulatory coexistence measures currently considered by Member States mostly rely on fixed separation distances at a ...
  • Influence of Air Temperature on the Stability of Cytoplasmic Male Sterility (CMS) in Maize (Zea mays L.) 

    Bückmann, Heidrun; Thiele, Katja; Hüsken, Alexandra; Schiemann, Joachim (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
  • Considering Religious and Cultural Aspects of Food and Agriculture when Seeking to Introduce or Develop GMOs 

    Coe, Alexandra (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Culture, religion, and technology have shaped the development of society since the dawn of time. This article examines sacredness and happiness—as the common values all religions and cultures share—as the lens of weighing ...
  • Preliminary Risk Assessment of Transgenic Plant Use in Ukraine 

    Novozhylov, Oleg V.; Blume, Yaroslav B. (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Proposed research for Ukraine is an attempt to adopt and develop a system of pre-release risk assessment of GM crops after the idea of F.T. de Vries and developed by K. Ammann based on integrated information (specific ...
  • Use of Novel Techniques in Plant Breeding and Practical Consequences Concerning Detection, Traceability, Labeling, and Risk Assessment 

    Ribarits, Alexandra; Brüller, Werner; Hartmann, Josef; Hochegger, Rupert; Mechtler, Klemens; Peterseil, Verena; Söllinger, Josef; Stepanek, Walter; Widhalm, Ingomar; Wögerbauer, Markus; Leonhardt, Charlotte (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Genetically modified plants (GMP) are regulated by comprehensive EU legislation. Cisgenesis, intragenesis, oligo-directed mutagenesis (ODM), zinc-finger nucleases (ZFN), and agroinfiltration were examined concerning ...
  • GIMI 2: A Tool for Fast Estimation and Prediction of GMO Maize Contents in Real Coexistence Situations 

    Melé, Enric; Nadal, Anna; Melé-Messeguer, Marina; Pla, Maria; Capellades, Gemma; Serra, Joan; Messeguer, Joaquima (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Coexistence of GM and conventional maize in locations where the two types of varieties are commercially grown would benefit from a tool to estimate and predict the GMO contents of conventional fields that are surrounded ...
  • Comparison of Sampling Strategies to Evaluate Rate of Transgenic Adventitious Presence in Agricultural Fields 

    Bancal, Rémi; Bensadoun, Arnaud; Messéan, Antoine; Monod, Hervé; Makowski, David (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Methods have been developed to detect transgenic presence in non-GM maize fields. These detection methods may be used to determine whether the regulatory transgenic rate threshold (0.9%) is exceeded, but the results are ...
  • Choosing Between Increased Means and Reduced Variance: Implications for Genetically Modified Crops 

    Moss, Charles B.; Schmitz, Andrew (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Plant genetic modifications can affect farm profitability through two pathways—the reduction in risk or variation in production or shifts in the relative productivity of inputs. This analysis examines the potential effect ...
  • The Economics of Labeling GM Foods 

    Huffman, Wallace E.; McCluskey, Jill J. (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    This article focuses on the economics of labeling genetically modified (GM) foods and some implications of GM-labeling policies. Food labels are one potentially important source of information about attributes of food that ...
  • Horses as Sources of Proprietary Information: Commercialization, Conservation, and Compensation Pursuant to the Convention on Biological Diversity 

    McClory, Haley; Kowalski, Stanley (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    Horses indigenous to East and Southeast (E/SE) Asia, including native, landrace, feral, and wild populations, embody valuable genetic diversity. Conservation efforts for animals have largely been driven by humane altruism, ...
  • Farmers’ Perceptions of Biopharming 

    Hayes, Michelle; Kostandini, Genti; Jordan, Jeffrey L. (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
    This article investigates farmers’ perceptions of biopharming in the United States through a survey administered to tobacco farmers from several tobacco growing states. Responses indicate that farmers have very limited ...
  • Economic Aspects of Segregation between GM and Non-GM Crops in Italy 

    Varacca, Alessandro; Boccaletti, Stefano; Soregaroli, Claudio (University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
