Tansley review no. 99. The release of genetically engineered micro-organisms and viruses into the environment



Tansley review no. 99. The release of genetically engineered micro-organisms and viruses into the environment



New Phytologist 140(2): 173-184



This review considers the reasons for, and research governing, the regulation and monitoring of genetically engineered micro-organisms and viruses (GEMs) released into the environment. The hazards associated with releasing GEMs into the environment are the creation and evolution of new pests and diseases, and damage to the ecosystem and non target species. The similarities and differences between GEMs and conventional micro-organisms are discussed in relation to risk assessment.
