How Will Transgenic Sugar Beets Behave in Natural Plant Communities
Phylogenetic leapfrogging is a true ecological novelty. New attribute qualities can be introduced into organisms.
The genetic modification can be carried out without traditional debilitating trade-offs. Instead of substitutional changes of alleles in traditional techniques, gene technology is able to add radical adaptive improvements.
Gene technology offers access to the non-Mendelian portions of the genome. The basic genetic command system, which may be hidden for altering in conventional manipulations, is now open for reprogramming.
