Research:

  • Preparation of opinions of the JKI on applications for the release and placing on the market of genetically engineered organisms
  • Main emphasises of risk assessment:

    • genetically modified herbicide resistant plants, including effects of changed management practices on the agroecosystem
    • genetically modified plants with modified or new metabolites

  • Spread and persistence of genetically modified plants and genes in the environment; especially with respect to co-existence of oilseed rape
  • Stability of gene expression in genetically modified plants (in progeny and after “gene stacking”)
  • Detection and molecular analysis of transgenes in plants (including epigenetic variation)
